Police are appealing for witnesses after four masked men forced their way into a house in Mymms Drive and stole high-value items between 5.05pm and 5.40pm on Monday 3 February.

Officers say the burglars conducted an “untidy search” of the premises, and took hundreds of pounds worth of cash along with thousands of pounds worth of jewellery.

The stolen items were taken away in a purple Puma gym bag which was also stolen from the address.

The four men are described as white and spoke with Eastern European accents. They made off in a white car.

Investigator Kevin Rawcliffe from the Welwyn Hatfield Local Crime Unit, wants to hear from anyone who might have information that could help the police catch the offenders.
“We understand that there were a number of people, dog walkers in particular, who were walking along Mymms Drive at around the time of the offence. If you were in Mymms Drive or the surrounding area between 5.05pm and 5.40pm, you could have information that will help us. 
“Did you see the offenders or the vehicle? Did you see suspicious activity or anyone acting suspiciously? Any information, no matter how insignificant it might seem, could be really important.
“I would also like to appeal to anyone who was driving along Mymms Drive. If you have a dash cam fitted to your vehicle, please check the footage to see if you captured anything that might assist us in tracing those responsible.”
If you can help, you are asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101 or email  kevin.rawcliffe@herts.pnn.police.uk quoting crime reference 41/10328/20.
