Please remain vigilant in Mole Valley as there’s been another nasty scam near- by!
Appeal for information following Outwood fraud
East Surrey CID is appealing for information following a fraud offence in Outwood where a woman in her 80s was conned out of cash and jewellery.

The victim received a telephone call at around 7pm on Thursday, 23 April from a man claiming to be police officer from a London station. The caller claimed that a man was in custody suspected of using the victim’s credit cards and urged her to collect all her cash, bank cards and valuables before putting them in a bag for a courier to collect.

Later that evening a man arrived at the property in a taxi and collected the bagged items before leaving the scene on foot. Officers believe the taxi driver who bought the man to the victim’s property may not have realised what was happening and are appealing for him to come forward. If he would like to provide information anonymously this can be done through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

The suspect is described as black, in his late teens and of slim build.
PC Jen Bilton, said: “Crimes of this nature where offenders target elderly or vulnerable people are simply inexcusable and I would like to take this opportunity to remind people to help us spread the message about these offences.

“Unfortunately, fraudsters often purport to be police officers and are therefore extremely convincing to their victims. They often feel ashamed or embarrassed about falling for these scams and they shouldn’t.

“I ask all victims to report such offences to Surrey Police as we need to catch these criminals.”

Officers are releasing images of a number of items of jewellery which were taken during the offence and they would like to hear from anyone who has seen or been offered these items for sale. Enquiries are being carried out at pawn brokers and other second hand shops where jewellery is bought/sold as part of the investigation.

More information about keeping yourself and others safe can be found by visiting


Anyone who can assist officers with their investigation is urged to contact Surrey Police quoting reference 45150033641. Information can be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Airspace change trial at Ockham Holding Stack

We have just been informed that an airspace change trial will be held between 30 April-30 September 2015 on the operation of the Ockham stack. 
The Ockham stack is one of four areas where aircraft are held at busy times awaiting landing space at Heathrow Airport.  Aircraft held in the stack fly an elongated circular pattern extending as far south as Dorking and as far east and west as Ashtead and Little Bookham respectively. The area can contain up to nine aircraft ‘stacked’ vertically at 1000ft intervals from a base of 7,000ft.  Further details are given in the attached fact sheet and flight maps.
The trial will test the use of performance based navigation techniques (PBN, sometimes called PRNAV) for operating the stack as a replacement for the ground-based beacon at Ockham that currently guides aircraft into the holding pattern.
National Air Traffic Services (NATS) who are conducting the trial say it is not expecting any perceptible change on the ground because the position and height of the stack is not changing, and a similar trial at another stack at Biggin Hill has not resulted in flightpath concentration.
However, if any residents are disturbed by aircraft noise as a result of the trial, please let me know and/or advise them to register a complaint to Heathrow Airport by emailing noise@heathrow.com or using the complaint form on the Heathrow Airport website at: http://www.heathrowairport.com/noise/what-you-can-do/make-a-complaint-about-noise .
Yours faithfully

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://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.

Surrey Police: Easter Weeekend

With the Easter weekend approaching I thought it would be appropriate to remind everybody about security. 

I am not sure the weather is nice enough to have windows open yet but if you are going out for the day, or going away over the weekend please do not forget your home security.  Please check your windows and doors are shut and locked, also if you have anything which you feel may be enticing to potential thieves such as laptops, tablets, telephones, etc please put these out of sight. 

Also think about your car security.  Do not leave, SatNavs, phones or bags on view in your car.  Take valuable items with you, that way you know they are safe.  Try to park in a public place.

If you are using bicycles please ensure you lock them to something rigid such as a lamppost when out and about, and at home make sure they are locked in a garage or shed which also has a suitable lock on the outside, and cover shed windows etc.


Have a great weekend, and if you need to contact police call 101 or 999 in an emergency.

Surrey Police: Update from: Mole Valley Neighbourhood Sergeant John Pearson

On Wednesday, 21 January, Surrey Police was made aware of a suspicious incident which is said to have occurred outside of Leatherhead Leisure Centre earlier that week.
Two schoolgirls reported being approached by a man in a car which was parked outside of the complex at around 8pm on Monday, 19 January.
Following this allegation a detective from East Surrey CID investigated the incident, working with staff from the leisure centre and the parents of those involved. During the investigation, which included viewing of CCTV, it transpired that no criminal offence had taken place and the events were not as originally reported.
Mole Valley Neighbourhood Sergeant John Pearson, said: “No doubt this incident caused concern in the local area but I would like to reassure the public that we carried out a thorough investigation into the claims and can confirm that no criminal offence occurred.
“Surrey Police will always take allegations of this nature extremely seriously and will investigate fully any reports which indicate that the children in our community could be at risk, however we do not now believe any child was in danger.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to ask those who have an influence in our community, such as on social media or circulating group messages to double check with police before they report on such events. This will prevent unnecessary speculation and concern in the area which can have an adverse effect when we do need to raise the alarm.”
