J3/12/194: Police would like to speak to this man


MORE CCTV images have been released by police in a bid to crack down on Hertsmere’s criminals.

As reported last month in the Potters Bar Edition, police have appealed for the public’s help as part of Operation Breaker – tackling crimes such as fraud, theft, and burglary.

The original release of pictures has given officers a number of leads to go on, and now police are hoping residents can provide information on even more crimes.

Hertsmere chief inspector Dean Patient said: “I thank people for taking the time to look at the CCTV images and for contacting us with information.

“We’ve taken this information forward and are making active enquiries.

“Following the positive response from members of the public, we’re releasing more images of people we’re keen to speak to in connection with crimes.

“Please take the time to look again at all the images and contact us if you recognise any of the faces shown.”

He added: “Operation Breaker aims to target those who are committing crime in the borough, prevent crime from happening and to ensure the community remains safe and the operation is seeing some great results with crime reducing in all areas of the borough since it started.”

Police would like to identify the men pictured in the following incidents.

Call the non-emergency number 101 with information.
