Sergeant Chris Hulian, from the intervention team, said: “This is an excellent example of how reporting suspicious activity to police straightaway can lead to positive results. Two people were detained less than 15 minutes after the initial call was made and the case is now set to progress through the court.”

The charged men are:

-Christopher Green, 41, of Victoria Terrace in London, has been charged with burglary and possession of cannabis.

-Gerrard Cash, 25, of Brackenfield Close in London, has been charged with burglary.

Both appeared before Hatfield Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 4 January where they were remanded into custody. They are next due to appear before Luton Crown Court on Monday 5 February.
