POLICE are appealing for witnesses to a series of incidents that took place during Wednesday evening, October 29.

Three incidents happened between 7.15pm and 8.40pm across Broxbourne and Harlow which detectives are linking.

Three men with covered faces entered the staff area of The Moorhen Pub in Burnt Mill Lane, Harlow around 7.15pm and removed personal items before making off.

A second incident then took place around 8.10pm at The Crown Hotel in Old Nazeing Road, Broxbourne, where men with covered faces were seen to enter the staff and living area of the venue to remove personal items before fleeing in a vehicle.

Finally police had reports of three men then entering the Co-op in Colt Hatch Harlow around 8.40pm via the back room where they threatened staff and removed cash and personal items. The men were armed with a crowbar.

Police believed a silver or light coloured vehicle may have been used by the suspects.

A police spokesperson said: “Incidents of this kind are thankfully rare and because of the similarities in the crimes we are linking them at this early stage. Extensive enquiries are being carried out to find the people responsible and we ask anyone with information to contact us.”

Witnesses are asked to call Harlow CID on 101 or people can also give information to the independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through their Anonymous Online Form at www. crimestoppers -uk.org
