Police are appealing for information after two car break-ins and a theft in Hatfield.

Between 6pm on Monday, February 6, and 10am the following day, the offender(s) broke into a grey Nissan Almera that had been left parked in Selwyn Avenue and searched inside. Nothing was taken.

Crooks also gained entry to a parked black BMW Mini in the same road between 9pm on Tuesday, February 7, and 8am the following day, but again nothing was taken.

A large wooden and metal table was also stolen from a driveway in Hare Lane, between 6am and 3pm on Friday, February 10.

Officers are linking all three incidents.

PC Shaun Buchanan, from the Hatfield Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “I am appealing for anyone who saw anything suspicious in the areas between the times stated to contact me.

“I would also like to hear from anyone who witnessed the large table being removed from a driveway or being loaded into a vehicle in Hare Lane.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Hertfordshire Constabulary via the non-emergency number 101, quoting the relevant crime number.
