Theft of underground cable – Elsenham Road, Stansted,  Sat 20 Nov
At around 5am on Saturday 20th November, a suspect in a Landrover Freelander was disturbed whilst pulling BT cable out of the ground (vehicle recovered at scene).  The suspect made off across fields as officers arrived at the scene (white male in 30’s, wearing hat and dark jacket).
The vehicle is believed to have been using false plates since the index did not match the chassis number which shows it to be a vehicle which was reported as stolen from Hertfordshire on 11th November.   This is the second such offence in 10 days.  In both cases the thefts were discovered whilst in progress and both the cable and vehicles left at the scene
