A man has been charged in connection with a series of vehicle interference offences in Watford town centre.

Miqdad Hassanali, 30, of Kensington Avenue in Watford, has been charged with three counts of vehicle interference.

The charges relate to offences committed yesterday (Monday 28 August) on Sotheron Road in Watford.

A member of the public called police at around 8.20am to report that a person was attempting to gain entry to several cars on the road.

Officers immediately attended and made an arrest within minutes of the call being made. The vehicles affected were an Audi A8, a Volvo V70, and a Ford Galaxy, but no property was reported as stolen.

Hassanali appeared before Hatfield Remand Court today (Tuesday, August 29) and was released on bail with strict conditions. He will next appear at St Albans Magistrates’ Court on Monday, December 18.

Inspector Dan Jones, who leads the Watford Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “Vehicle crime is an issue that residents have said they want us to focus on, and it has been identified as one of our policing priorities for the next quarter.

“The teams have already carried out targeted high-visibility and plain-clothes operations at peak times, to identify insecure vehicles along with any suspicious activity. They will continue with these operations, and I’m pleased that we have achieved a charge and remand result for these recent offences.

“This case shows how vital it is to call us as soon as you suspect that a crime is being committed, as we can then respond in a timely manner to gather as much information and evidence for our investigation.”
