Football Club ReUnited

A St Albans local football club has been re-united with their stolen kit.

A member of the public spoke with PCSO Adriano Russo on Tuesday, September 27 at a neighbourhood meeting he was holding to inform him they had seen a bag in Century Close hidden behind a telecoms box. PCSO Russo went to investigate and found all of the kit, which was worth £1,500, in the bag.

The football kits had been taken from a car parked in Goldsmith Way between 7.30pm on Saturday, September 10 and 8am on Sunday, September 11.

PCSO Russo said:

"I was delighted to be able to give the kits back to Chequers FC and understandably the club were very pleased.

I would like to take this opportunity to make a further appeal for information for anyone who saw anyone acting suspiciously between Goldsmith Way and nearby Century Close between the times and dates stated above to please contact me."

Anyone who has any information should please call the Hertfordshire Constabulary non-emergency number 101 quoting crime reference number F1/16/3454.
