13 Jan 2020
  • On Friday 6 December, a property in Church Road was broken into.

  • Many items were stolen, including high-value watches, designer handbags, jewellery and cash.

  • Officers are appealing for witnesses and information, and hoping to identify a man they think could assist with their enquiries.

Officers investigating a burglary in Watford have released an image of a man they would like to identify, as they believe he may be able to assist with their investigation.

On Friday 6 December, at around 3.45pm, a property in Church Road was broken into.

A messy search of the property was conducted, and several items were found to be missing, including nine high-value watches, two designer handbags and a large amount of cash.

Detective Constable Hannah Curnow, who is investigating the case, said: “We are appealing for anyone with information to please come forward. The victims are understandably devastated at the loss of their precious possessions, as well as the damage caused to their property.

“We are aware that the CCTV image is not of the best quality, but we’re hoping that someone might recognise this man thanks to his distinctive outfit – he was wearing trainers that had neon green laces, and purple and yellow gloves. We think that he might have been in the area at the time, and could help us with our investigation.

“From the extensive enquiries we’ve already carried out, we believe that the suspect(s) may have driven a red Lexus. If you were driving in the area around the time specified, and you have a dash cam fitted to your vehicle, please have a look through the footage and send us anything you think could assist our investigation.

 “If you were in the area and believe you may have witnessed the incident, or believe that you saw someone behaving suspiciously, please get in touch with me. Any information you have, even something that might seem minor, could be key to us solving the case.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact DC Curnow directly via email at
