The police helicopter was seen circling the town yesterday and there was a large-scale police activity in the Hillside area of the town.

While on patrol, officers from Hertsmere’s Scorpion team saw a man they believed was wanted. The man made off from police and a search was then carried out to find him.

Hertfordshire Constabulary has confirmed that a short while later, a man was arrested in Cardinal Avenue.

• Darrell Neequaye, aged 32, of Potters Bar, has been charged with burglary in connection with an offence in London in February 2019. He has been remanded in custody and will be passed to the Metropolitan Police.

Scorpion officers proactively pursue criminals who commit burglaries, robberies as well as drug-related and acquisitive crime.
