Police are appealing for information and witnesses after a handbag was stolen from a car in Wymondley Road, near Letchworth last week.

The incident took place between 11am and 11.45am on Friday, May 6 when a handbag containing cash and other items was stolen from a green Volkswagen Golf in Wymondley Wood Car Park just off Wymondley Road.

PC Des Kelly said: β€œThis is an isolated location mainly used by dog walkers. The offender smashed the window of the car to get inside and steal the handbag and I would appeal to anyone who may have been in the area and saw or heard anything to contact me. A green saloon type vehicle was seen at the time in the area and I would like to speak to the driver of this car, or anyone who may have seen it and can provide more details.

β€œIf you can help, please call me via the non-emergency number on 0845 33 00 222. Alternatively, you can call Crimestoppers, the independent charity, on 0800 555 111.”
