Over the border: Police appeal over firearms incident in North Weald
Crime / Mon 14th Aug 2023 at 02:39pm
DETECTIVES are making a six-month anniversary appeal for information on an incident in North Weald involving a firearm.
We were called to High Road, close to Emberson Way, at about 1am on Sunday 12 February following reports of a shotgun being fired at a car.
The man involved then attempted to flee the scene on a moped before eventually leaving the area on foot.
The investigation has progressed over the last six months, with specialist detectives exploring a number of lines of enquiry.
At this stage, we’re now appealing to anyone who may have seen a moped rider in the area at the time wearing a black and white motorbike helmet, a white and light blue, turquoise or teal ski jacket and red gloves.
It’s possible this person may have flagged down a passing motorist to ask for a lift.
The moped was located and forensically recovered.
