Business owners urged to step up their security in following two recent burglaries

image001Police in Surrey are urging local businesses to review their security following two burglaries in the Ashford and Chertsey areas. Officers are linking both offences which occurred in the early hours (around 4am) of Monday 1 June and both involved a black Audi.

Damage occurred to the front door of each property and a small amount of cash was stolen from the premises in Ashford town. At this stage it appears that nothing was taken from the premises on the Fordwater Trading Estate in Chertsey.

DC Felicity Bracewell said: “We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen a black Audi in the early hours of Monday morning in the Ashford/Chertsey areas so we can further our investigation and bring any offenders to justice. These offences also serve as a reminder to business owners to review your own security and take proper measures to ensure your premises is safe and secure.”
