Surrey Police: Home Security

Unfortunately there has recently been a burglary in Leatherhead whereby a house window was left open overnight and the thief spotted an opportunity to take a handbag.

Therefore, I thought that this might be an appropriate time to remind everyone to ensure that all windows and doors are locked when you leave your house, even for just a couple of minutes.  Also, if you want to leave a window open overnight make sure it’s either a top opening window or a window that you can lock in place so that it cannot be opened any wider to allow a person to get through it.

Before you leave your home to go to work or go on holiday have a quick look around as a burglar would.  Is there anything that you can see from outside that might make your property attractive to burglars?  Do you have any ladders, or tools left out in the garden?  Have you locked all windows and doors and do you have a lock on any outbuildings such as sheds?  Also, when going away for any length of time perhaps let your neighbours know and ask them to call police on 101 if they notice or hear anything suspicious.  If a crime is witnessed please call 999.

We get very few burglaries in Mole Valley and with your help we can keep it that way.

Ave atque Vale!

Dear Readers,
 
This is to announce the death of Fulvius. The link below explains why the death occurred:
Fulvius’ Last Comment.
 
I fear that since the pseudonym has been compromised, my continued use of it could cause embarrassment to the LRA and, more especially, to my wife. I wish to avoid this and, therefore, Fulvius is no more.

Keeping your commercial vehicle safe
  • Ensure your vehicle is always locked. Lock the back doors while driving.
  • If your vehicle doesn’t have an alarm, get one fitted. Insurance companies will often give a discount for properly installed and approved alarms.
  • Never leave personal documents in the vehicle’s cab.
  • Never leave tools or equipment in your vehicle overnight.
  • Keep your van keys safe while you are working. Never leave them in your vehicle.
  • ‘High clearance’ vehicles are common targets for catalytic converter theft. Mark yours to deter thieves.
  • Security mark all your tools and equipment to make items uniquely identifiable
  • Don’t buy cheap, second hand tools from a building site – they may be stolen. If you are suspicious – tell the police.
  • Keep stops for fuel, food and other goods to a minimum. The fewer stops you need to make (leaving your vehicle unattended) the more secure it will be.
  • Make sure you have fully comprehensive insurance for your vehicle. Thieves will often ‘smash and grab’ causing damage that is expensive to repair and may take you off the road for several days.

Drugs arrest of man at Boxhill y’day by N’hood PC Lee Munday + Matt Savage. Relentless pursuit !

https://twitter.com/MoleValleyBeat
https://www.facebook.com/MoleValleyPolice

and
A third man has been sentenced in connection with 35 incidents – including one in Leatherhead – where elderly people were accosted in the street, followed home and demanded money for work which had never been completed on their homes.
Jesse Webb, 19, of The Paddocks, Lyne Road, Virginia Water, worked alongside his brother and father, travelling far and wide, looking for older people to target.
They would stop the victims, usually close to their homes, claim they had completed roofing work on their property and had returned to collect payment for the work. Often their victims, some of whom suffered from memory impairment through dementia or Alzheimer’s, would believe them. In some cases the victim would give them cash from their home or, if they didn’t have cash, the gang would drive the victim to their bank and get them to withdraw large sums of money.
Upon entering the victim’s house, they would also commit a distraction burglary, distracting the victim whilst the other searched the house for more cash.

The complex investigation was led by Hertfordshire Constabulary’s specialist investigation team, Operation Manhunt, a unit set up to investigate distraction burglary, frauds and other crimes against the elderly.
