A property was broken into twice in under a week with burglars smashing a window to gain entry.

Police are investigating the burglaries in Caractacus Cottage View that happened on May 8 and May 13.

The intruders were able to enter after breaking a window, Herts Police said.

It is currently unclear what was taken and whether anyone was inside at the time. Police have been contacted for details.

Now a CCTV image of a man has been released who may be able to help with the case.

Detective Constable Debbie West, who is investigating, said: “It is believed that the man pictured may have been in the area at the time, and could help us with our enquiries. If you recognise him, please get in touch.”
