Four arrested in London in connection with burglary in Bishop’s Stortford in which car, wallet and cash were stolen
Four people have been arrested in connection with a burglary in Bishop’s Stortford, in which a car was stolen, after enquiries led police to east London.
A house in Gerard Avenue, Thorley Park, was broken into in the early hours of last Thursday (May 5). Keys, a wallet and cash were stolen, along with a Renault Megane which was parked outside.
Enquiries carried out in the area led to police identifying a second 'vehicle of interest', a Hyundai, which had been stolen from the Metropolitan police area.
That afternoon, the Megane was found parked in a street in Rainham and was recovered by police. Two men from London, aged 23 and 22, were arrested nearby and taken into custody.
Later that evening, the Hyundai was spotted driving past as officers were searching an address in London as part of their investigation.
Following a pursuit, the vehicle was abandoned in Barking and a 19-year-old man from Bedfordshire and a 17-year-old woman from London were arrested.
All four have been released on bail pending further enquiries.
Det Con Karen Warner, from Hertfordshire Constabulary’s specialist investigation team, said: “Thanks to some fast-time enquiries and great partnership working with our colleagues in the Met, we were able to make four arrests within 24 hours of the burglary taking place. Our investigation continues at this time.”
