Burglary Crime Prevention Advice

Alert message sent 05/11/2019 11:57:00

Information sent on behalf of Surrey Police

We’re reminding the public of our burglary crime prevention advice following a number of recent reports about high value jewellery theft in the North and West of Surrey.

In recent weeks a number of reports have been received in the Frimley and Camberley area. Since the start of August 2019 we have received 35 reports of burglaries or attempted burglaries targeting gold or high value jewellery in the Surrey Heath area.

In the North of the county in the same period 94 reports have been received mainly in the Elmbridge and Runnymede areas.

Detective Superintendent Peter Fulton said: “Proactive teams have been working with our colleagues from local neighbourhood teams to carry out regular patrols and to gather information which will help to confirm which of these reports may be linked.
“I’m keen to remind people to report suspicious activity to Surrey Police by calling 101 as this may provide a vital piece of information to progress our enquiries. If you see anyone acting suspiciously in your street or a vehicle that doesn’t seem to belong there please do call in to tell us.
“If you have CCTV installed at your home or business please familiarise yourself with how the system works and how to download footage. This will help us to circulate suitable images relating to burglary as quickly as possible to officers across the county and neighbouring forces.
“The thing that links many of these reports is the presence of high value gold jewellery, which is then stolen. I would ask the Asian community to consider our crime prevention advice if they have high value jewellery in their homes, a high proportion of these offences have targeted Asian families.
“In the North of the county we have noted that many of the reports relate to burglaries carried out between 3pm and 7pm. I’d therefore remind people of our message to lock up properly and to leave a light on if they are going out because the evenings are getting darker earlier following the end of British Summer Time".
