Two men have been arrested, charged and remanded for conspiracy to commit 21 burglaries including offences in Potters Bar and Bushey.

Gavin Prentice, 23, of no fixed address, and Myles Moorhouse, 28, of Chadwell Heath, in Romford, have been charged with burglaries in Hertfordshire, Essex and London between January 3, 2017 and November 24, 2017.

The Hertsmere offences include a burglary on February 17 in Northlands in Potters Bar and Clays Lane in Bushey Heath on March 24, both last year.

They have been remanded in custody and are due before Uxbridge Crown Court at a date to be set.

Hertsmere chief inspector Steve O’Keeffe said: “My team of detectives worked hard to secure a complex conspiracy charge.

“My message is clear; we will relentlessly hunt down burglars and will continue to pursue suspects long after the offences.”
