Police are investigating four burglaries that took place in Redhill on Tuesday 17 November 2015.

Three of the offences are believed to have occurred during the day and were all reported to police between 6pm and 7pm when the occupants returned to their properties.  Items including jewellery were taken from the premises on Redstone Hollow, Alpine Road and Earlswood Road.

Officers were also called to a property on Carlton Road at around 9.45pm, when it was reported intruders were inside the house.  Police carried out a thorough search of the property and the surrounding area, with assistance from the National Police Air Service helicopter, but no arrests were made.

On each occasion the offender gained entry to the rear of the property.

Investigating Officer Detective Constable Steven Cassidy said:

“I would appeal to anyone who saw something suspicious in the Redhill area yesterday which may relate to these burglaries to contact officers with information.

Good security is vital for any household and I cannot stress how important it is to take simple measures such as using light timers and investing in high-quality doors and locks. More information on this subject can be found by visiting the Surrey Police website.

Due to the spate of offences yesterday I would urge anyone who is looking after a property in the Redhill area for someone who is currently away from the area to check the premises.”

Anyone who can assist officers with their burglary investigations is urged to contact Surrey Police quoting reference 45150104767.   Information can also be passed anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
