Surrey Police is reminding homeowners in Runnymede to take all necessary security precautions to keep their property safe and deter offenders looking to steal Asian gold and other valuable jewellery.This advice comes after a house was targeted in Pinewood Avenue, New Haw sometime between 8am and 1.45pm Thursday 6 November.After a thorough search of the house, the offender(s) made off with an iPad, cash and a quantity of gold jewellery. A man of Asian or possibly Indian appearance was seen in the area wearing a red baseball cap on Thursday and police are keen to speak to him about this incident.

Investigating officer, Detective Constable Nicola Bartholomew said: “This offence took place during the day and we feel sure that someone must have seen or heard something. If you noticed anything unusual please do give us a call on 101 so we can progress our investigation.

“We would also like to hear from anyone who may have been approached or has information relating to Asian gold jewellery.”

Runnymede Neighbourhood Sergeant Sarah White added: “We are stepping up patrols in the area to provide a visible deterrent and are also talking to residents to remind them about home security. It’s not just a case of locking doors and windows. Residents also need to think about where valuable items are stored.

“If possible, store jewellery in a bank safety deposit box, or invest in a home safe and avoid discussing holidays or trips away in public. Also, we recommend that you photograph your jewellery and register items and other valuables via a database such as http://www.immobilise.com/ so that if items are recovered they can be reunited with their owners.”
