A tesco van delivering groceries in Welwyn Garden City was the victim of opportunistic thieves last week.

The van was parked in Bridge Road, near to the junction with Valley Road, at around 8pm on Tuesday, May 5.

The driver, who had been delivering to a property, noticed on his return that a black and silver Messenger bag had been taken from inside.

Two people wearing hoodies were seen near the van around the time the bag was taken.

Police are hoping anyone who noticed anything unusual will come forward with information.

“If this was you, or you have any other information about the theft, please get in contact with me.”

Anyone with information should contact PC Turner via the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference B1/15/1417.
