posted 4 Apr 2011, 09:25 by Maria Larkin

Dear Residents

Though this crime may not be near where you live I would still like to include on this bulletin as it may be you are a member of William Penn or other centres/gyms in Three Rivers.

At around 1pm on Tuesday 29th March a person's locker was broken into whilst they were in the gym and car keys and other personal effects were stolen. The car keys were used to steal a silver Audi A5 (Index ET08GJO) from the car park.

CCTV footage allowed us to see how the two offenders planned the crime: They went into the Leisure centre paid an entrance fee then went back outside and waited in the car park for a suitable car to arrive. They followed the owner of the car into the gym and spoke to them while they were getting changed. When the owner left they broke into the locker, stole the items mentioned, made their way back out and stole the car.

The first offender was described as being male, white, slim build, short dark hair, wearing a dark jacket, blue jeans and dark coloured trainers. Under the jacket he was wearing a distinctive, bright turquoise top. He was heard speaking with an Irish accent.

The second offender was described as being male, white, medium build, short dark hair, wearing a red hooded top with dark coloured sleeves (it also has light coloured letters on the front), blue jeans carrying a Tesco Bag "for Life". If you have any information then please call our non emergency number 0845 3300222 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

If you are a member of any local gym or leisure centre please be mindful of the above and if you are in any way suspicious of anyone please inform the nearest member of staff.

PC 1333 Laver is the investigating officer.
