Witness appeal following multiple keyless car thefts in Cobham
Main article content
Elmbridge Neighbourhood Team are currently investigating a series of keyless car thefts which occurred last night (25 May).
The initial report came in this morning of a Mercedes being stolen overnight from the driveway of a residential property in Pony Chase, Cobham. There has since been two further vehicle thefts reported in Cobham in the vicinity of Sandy Lane where BMWs were stolen.
Investigating Officers believe that these three reports are connected, and the offences are likely to have been committed by the same suspects.
Inspector Bert Dean, Borough Commander for Elmbridge said “We are currently reviewing CCTV from the local area and carrying out wider enquiries. We are asking for the public who live in that area or may have been driving around that area last night to review their CCTV and dashcam footage.
“You may think that footage you have is insignificant, but it will be useful for us to build a picture of routes the suspects may have taken after stealing these vehicles.
“Unfortunately, keyless car thefts are something we are dealing with fairly regularly so there is a lot of work going on at Surrey Police to look into what we can do to prevent keyless car thefts and improve the way we investigate them.
“We advise that the public keep their keys in a signal blocking pouch such as a faraday bag which can be purchased fairly cheaply.”
