Mole Valley Beat Bulletin Tuesday 25 Feb 2020
Catalytic Converter Thefts in #Leigh #Fetcham #Leatherhead. If you think its suspicious and a crime is taking place call 999 ! If you’re not sure it’s a crime, we’d rather hear from you and determine that ourselves. Let’s make it difficult for thieves - mark , park , protect !!
The precious metals used in catalytic converters such as rhodium, platinum and palladium has led to an increase in their theft. Cars that are most often targeted are hybrid vehicles as these vehicles have two power sources (electric and petrol or diesel) so the catalytic converter is used less frequently - the metals are less likely to corrode, meaning they are worth more and therefore more attractive to thieves. Vans and SUV’s are particularly at risk, as the ride height makes access to the exhaust system beneath them easier.
To keep your vehicle safe, ask your manufacture or dealer if they can give you any advice on locks or guards to protect the catalytic converters under the vehicle. Any products will need to be approved by the vehicle manufacturer for use on your vehicle model.
Early, very early this morning we spotted a car on Kingston Rd #Leatherhead driven very poorly - woman driver after testing positive for drug driving arrested and conveyed to custody - investigation continues...facts/law/consequences 
Detectives have arrested a man on suspicion of making a number of bomb hoaxes across south London and Surrey.
The 63-year-old was arrested in Surrey today (Monday, 24 February).
The arrest follows a joint operation between the Met and Surrey Police following six separate incidents.
Police are looking to reunite these items with their owners.
The tools were found in a car suspected of being involved in the theft of property from vehicles across Sussex.
Some items retrieved from the vehicle have already been reunited with their owners, who reported the thefts to police.
Officers are now keen to find the owners of the other items found in the car.
Anyone who recognises any of these items, or who thinks they may belong to them, are asked to contact police online or call 101 quoting serial 1351 of 15/02.
Follow link in case you recognise any of these found items –
Today - talk with old / vulnerable about being alert when shopping - we had another distraction theft in #Dorking - purse stolen by suspect getting in close asking for directions. Cards later used to purchase goods outside  of Mole Valley Under investigation 
Don’t let them pocket it
It’s strange how most people don’t secure their shed or garage in the same way they do their homes. People often end up using a flimsy lock or padlock to protect the contents – whether it’s a car, bike or lawnmower. Tips – 
Surrey Police Casualty Reduction Team were working in a late shift in Mole Valley over the weekend looking for speeding and intoxicated drivers
A number of traffic offence reports were handed out in #fetcham #leatherhead and #westcott for excess speed, and other motoring offences
Always remember to #checkyourtyres insurance, tax and MOT are in date!
If you have high value items such as jewellery, watches, passports, credit cards, computer data and identification documents, you may want to consider storing them in a safe.
