Between 5pm on Wednesday, January 10 and 8am the following day, offender(s) approached temporary traffic lights in Cranborne Road and removed the batteries from the lights. In total, 12 batteries were taken.
PC Paul Francis, who is investigating, said: “The batteries are large and it would have taken the offender(s) some time to load them onto a vehicle.
“I’m appealing for anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area between the times stated or noticed that the lights were not working to get in touch as you may have information that could assist our investigation.”
Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Francis by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, calling the non-emergency number 101, quoting crime reference J3/18/62 or report information online at www.herts.police.uk/report.
