Information sent on behalf of Surrey Police

Bulletin 16   May 27th – June 2nd  2020

Dear Neighbourhood Watch Members

We have recently been successful in recovering a number of items of property that we believe to be stolen and have placed photographs of some of them on the Tandridge Beat Facebook page because they have no serial numbers or identification marks that might enable us to trace the owners.

 I would like to remind our readers of the website http://www.immobilise.com which is a free site for you to record serial numbers and photos of everything from jewellery to power tools. Immobilise is the world's largest FREE register of possession ownership details which Surrey Police have access to check serial numbers to ensure they are in lawful possession if people or vehicle are stopped and searched on the street or following execution of a warrant .

The register is used by all UK police forces and can also be used as a useful record for recording purchase dates/prices should you ever have a warranty claim. Nothing gives the police more satisfaction than recovering stolen property or proving that items do not belong to an individual.

Help us to make life for criminals more difficult and to seize their ill-gotten gains - sadly if we can't prove that the property belongs to someone else then we have to return it back to them which is very galling!!

Tandridge Safer Neighbourhood Inspector

Update on Lingfield pursuit.

As reported in last week’s Bulletin in the early hours of Friday May 22nd police were involved in a pursuit of a stolen Jaguar in Lingfield. Sadly the driver got away but hopefully our scenes of crime staff can do their stuff and lead us to a suspect.

The vehicle was recovered and inside we found a pressure washer and drill set.
Unfortunately neither have their serial numbers registered on www.immobilise.com, neither of them are marked with a post code or marked with a DNA marking kit so we are struggling to find the owner/s.

Photographs of the items can be found on our Tandridge Beat Facebook page if you think they may be yours please contact us quoting Surrey police reference  45200052669.

Deer Update

Our DEER colleagues conducted a warrant on May 27th in Mole Valley.
They found four deer statues at the location. Quick thinking PC Bush recalled a job he had dealt with where they were stolen, so they were very pleased to be able to get these back to the owners in Tandridge. Along with the deer they also found a stolen Land Rover, a Horsebox, a mini digger and some power tools which are also on their way back to the owners.

On May 29th Tandridge officers executed a warrant at Shipley Bridge and located two further deer statues along with a stolen Range Rover and caravan. We transported a suspect to custody on suspicion of theft to answer a few questions. The deer statues were stolen from Reigate and are now safely back with their owners.


Officers dealt with four Covid-19 incidents over the past week by way of either issuing words of advice or Penalty Notices.
