Warning after spate of burglaries in east Surrey
Surrey residents have been warned to be vigilant after a spate of burglaries in the west of the county.
Surrey Police said 14 homes have been burgled in Godalming, Farncombe and Milford in the past four weeks.
John Robini, a crime reduction adviser, said: "It would seem that there is some determination by these thieves to smash their way in and snatch belongings.
"They are concentrating their efforts on grabbing small items which can be easily transported out of a property."
Mr Robini advised residents to ensure their doors and windows are securely locked and to fit a burglar alarm system, if possible.
