ESSEX Police have arrested three people and charged three as part of their investigations into a series of burglaries and other thefts in the Harlow area. Officers executed a search warrant at a location in Fern Hill Lane, in Harlow, on Wednesday morning. Two men, aged 34 and 22, and a 23-year-old woman, all from Harlow, were arrested on conspiracy to burgle. The woman was also arrested on suspicion of theft after a pug was recovered during the searches.

They were all taken to Harlow Police Station for questioning before being released on police bail pending further enquiries. The woman was released without charge in relation to the theft of the pug as there was insufficient evidence to proceed. The dog was later reunited with her owner at Harlow Police Station. Owner Kate Witham said: “I had been so worried about Lola since she went missing so when I got the call from the police I was over the moon. As soon as I saw her, her little tail went into overdrive and I instantly knew it was her. I am just so happy to have her back.”

Detective Inspector Alison Hooper said: “We have been working hard to tackle a recent spike in burglaries and car crime in the Harlow area and these arrests are just part of our response. We have also recently charged another man with conspiracy to steal and two others with burglary and they are currently before the courts. If anyone has information which could assist our enquiries then I would urge them to call Harlow CID on 101. Alternatively they can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111, it offers rewards of up to £1,000 for information leading to the arrest and or conviction of offenders.”

Steven Clark, aged 18, of Fern Hill Lane, Harlow, was charged on Monday August 17 with two counts of conspiracy to steal. He appeared before Chelmsford Magistrates the next day and is next due to appear at Chelmsford Crown Court on Monday November 9 2015.

Two 16-year-old boys from Harlow were charged on Tuesday August 18 with burglary offences. One faces two counts of burglary and the other four counts of burglary and a driving offence. They are both on bail to appear before Chelmsford Youth Court on Friday September 25.
