Bishop's Stortford police chase thieves out of Spellbrook
Police pursued would-be burglars on Tuesday morning (May 14) after an attempted break-in at a house in Spellbrook.
Officers were called just after 10am when two men were seen trying to break into a garage in Spellbrook Lane West.
They claimed to be tree surgeons when the owner challenged them. They then leapt into a silver vehicle and left the area.
Police tried to follow the vehicle but it sped off. A search was carried out, with assistance from the police helicopter, but the vehicle has not yet been traced.
Enquiries are continuing.
