Two teenagers have been arrested after a police pursuit in Berkhamsted. 

Officers on patrol arrested them both in connection with a robbery after a member of the public flagged them down and told them they had seen a moped being driven dangerously.

It happened at around 12.30pm on Sunday (10th March) while police officers were carrying out a routine patrol in Queens Street, Berkhamsted.

They followed the moped and stopped it in Moor End Road, Hemel Hempstead.

The offence relates to the alleged theft of a bag at Berkhamsted Skate Park in Broadwater.

An 18 year old man and a 16 year old boy, both from Watford, were arrested on suspicion of theft from a person and on suspicion of possession of a Class B drug.

Berkhamsted and Tring Sergeant Ryan Hemmings said:

“The officers reacted quickly and were able to safely stop the moped and arrest the two people on suspicion of theft.

“This is a great example of the public working with the police to help tackle crime and keep our communities safe. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the member of the public who alerted officers.

“I would encourage anyone who has information about suspected criminal activity in their neighbourhood to contact an officer from their local Safer Neighbourhood Team, submit details online at www.herts.police.uk/Report or call the non-emergency number 101. If a crime is in progress always dial 999.”

The two teenagers have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
