A 46-year-old man from London has been arrested on suspicion of fraud by false representation after police were called to reports of a person acting suspiciously in Hitchin.
Police were called to Bearton Road at around 1.10pm on Wednesday, April 28.
Herts police have since confirmed that it had been reported that two parcels had been delivered to an address, which the occupant had not ordered.
A short time later, an unknown man arrived to collect them.
The man was taken into custody after being arrested, but has since been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
