Burglars target homes for gold jewellery

Police in Camberley are urging householders to step up their home security following a number of burglaries in the Watchetts and St Michaels area of Camberley where gold has been stolen.

I want to make residents aware of these recent burglaries and to urge homeowners to take steps now to improve their home security. Asian jewellery is being targeted for the gold which tends to be of a higher purity and therefore has a higher resale value.

– Detective Constable Richard Pegden

If anyone has any information about these burglaries or saw anything suspicious please call Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference 45140011544.
