A man has pleaded guilty to carrying out four burglaries and one attempted burglary across three counties.

Sorin Enache, aged 32, of no fixed address, appeared at Hatfield Remand Court on Friday (10 September) where he pleaded guilty to all charges. He was remanded into custody and the case was adjourned for sentencing at St Albans Crown Court on 1 October.

He is charged with:

  • Burglary at a property in Little Bushey Lane, Bushey, between 16 July and 17 July, 2021
  • Burglary in Chartridge Lane, Chesham, Bucks, between 16 March and 17 March 2021
  • Burglary in Upware, Ely, Cambridgeshire, between 24 October and 29 October 2019
  • Burglary in Brookmans Park, Hatfield, between 2 August and 5 August 2019
  • Attempted burglary in Dog Kennel Lane, Chorleywood, between 25 July and 25 July, 2019

He also pleaded guilty to a separate charge of failing to appear at West London Magistrates’ Court on 11 August in relation to a drink driving offence.

Detective Sergeant Katie Stevens said: “Enache was arrested by officers following a call by a member of the public reporting a person behaving suspiciously in a vehicle in Trooper Road, Aldbury, near Tring, on Wednesday (8 September).

“This arrest shows the importance of members of the public not hesitating to call us when they see something they think isn’t quite right.

“When officers arrived in Aldbury they identified Enache as being a person wanted in connection with burglary offences. He has now been remanded into custody while he awaits sentencing.”

She added: “Now that summer has come to an end and the nights are drawing in I would encourage everyone to carry out a security check of their homes.

“Are your windows and door properly secured? Have you checked that your garden perimeter is sufficient and that gates, sheds and garages are properly locked?
