A MAN who was sitting in a white van is being sought by police following a burglary.

The break-in took place at a property in Heath Road, Welwyn between 3pm and 4pm on Friday, June 28.

The offenders forced entry to the house through a patio door and ransacked the home but left empty handed.

They may have used a red vehicle, which was parked outside the house, to get away in.

It is believed a man, described as white and between 40 to 50 with black hair and a sun tan, was sitting inside a white van parked in the road when the burglary happened and police are keen to talk to him.

Police say he may have been writing on a clipboard at the time.

The van is described as a small white van with three to four lines of black writing on the side and an orange logo.

Detective Constable Glen Turrell-Oldacre from the Local Crime Unit, in Hatfield, said: “Our enquires have led us to believe there was a van parked in the road at the time of the offence and I would really like to speak to the man in the white van.

“It may be that he didn’t realise that a crime had just occurred but he may have seen the offenders.

“If this was you please contact me.

“I’d also be very keen to speak to anyone who was in the area at the time and believes they saw or heard anything.”

Anyone with information should contact the Herts Police non-emergency number 101.
