Two men have been charged following an attempted burglary in Potters Bar.

Kieran Mohan, 26, of Gordon Road in Finchley and Alexander Prentice, 25, who is homeless, were arrested in Baker Street on December 22.

They had been spotted by members of the public in Elmfield Road, who called the police.

The two men were quickly arrested for attempted burglary and possession of cannabis.

They were remanded and appeared at Hatfield Remand Court on Boxing Day.

Detective Sergeant Annie Waylett said: “We are very grateful to the local residents who promptly called us about men acting suspiciously as we were able to make quick arrests. We rely on the public to be our ears and eyes to help us prevent crime.”
