Reassurance after series of robberies in Tring

After a number of robberies in Tring the police and County Council have advice for the community. 

Over Christmas five people were robbed in the space of just 45 minutes.

Then, this morning we found out three teenagers had been arrested after a burglary at a store on Christchurch Road.

Nick Hollinghurst told us it is unusual for the area, but added that if people see any smashed street lights we must report them:

"This could have been preliminary to some robberies.

"I would urge people - if you see any street lights especially on footpaths, which are out, to ring Herts County Councillor direct or go to the website and report them for repair.

"I think the County can look into the situation of the footpaths and I will be asking that on isolated footpaths, lights are kept on all night."

People are being urged to stay vigilant.

Dacorum Crime Unit are aware of the situation, Berkhamsted and Tring Sergeant Ryan Hemmings has said: 

“Understandably members of the Tring community have been left concerned following a number of robbery incidents in the town in recent weeks.

"I’d like to assure you that my officers are working hard to identify those who are responsible for these crimes.

"Anyone with information that can assist us can get in touch by calling the non-emergency number 101 or report information online here.

"If a crime is in progress always dial 999."
