A box containing around 100 of the 28mm tall metal wargaming figures was stolen from outside an address on Varney Road as the owner was unloading his vehicle on 6 October 2019.

Enquiries to trace the items have been unsuccessful and so a further appeal for information is being made.

A Hertfordshire Constabulary spokesperson said: “I appreciate the theft of these items took place some time ago, however I’m appealing to anyone who may have seen them to get in contact with us.
