BURGLARS, who ransacked a home in Brookmans Park, fled with numerous items including a safe.

The raid took place between 5.30pm and 8.30pm on Sunday (October 21) in Oaklands Avenue, Brookmans Park.

Crooks broke in through the rear of the home and then headed to the bedrooms in search of valuables to steal.

A police spokesman told the Welwyn Hatfield Times: “The offenders have made an untidy search of two bedrooms before making off in an unknown direction with numerous items, including jewellery and a small safe.”

• Anyone with information should contact police on the non-emergency number 101 quoting crime reference B2/12/3672, or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
