A man has pleaded guilty to carrying out four burglaries and one attempted burglary across three counties.

Sorin Enache, aged 32, of no fixed address, targeted five properties, including in Bushey and Chorleywood, between 2019 and July this year.

He was arrested a few days ago after police were alerted to a man acting suspiciously near Tring in Hertfordshire.

Detective Sergeant Katie Stevens said: "Enache was arrested by officers following a call by a member of the public reporting a person behaving suspiciously in a vehicle in Trooper Road, Aldbury, near Tring, on Wednesday (September 8).

"This arrest shows the importance of members of the public not hesitating to call us when they see something they think isn’t quite right.

"When officers arrived in Aldbury they identified Enache as being a person wanted in connection with burglary offences. He has now been remanded into custody while he awaits sentencing."

Sorin Enache was charged by police with:

• Burglary at a property in Little Bushey Lane, Bushey, between 16 July and 17 July, 2021

• Burglary in Chartridge Lane, Chesham, Buckinghamshire, between 16 March and 17 March 2021

• Burglary in Upware, Ely, Cambridgeshire, between 24 October and 29 October 2019

• Burglary in Brookmans Park, near Hatfield, between 2 August and 5 August 2019

• Attempted burglary in Dog Kennel Lane, Chorleywood, between 25 July and 25 July, 2019

Enache appeared at Hatfield Remand Court on September 10 where he pleaded to the five charges.

He has been remanded in custody and will be sentenced at St Albans Crown Court on October 1.

He also pleaded guilty to a separate charge of failing to appear at West London Magistrates’ Court on August 11 in relation to a drink driving offence.
