Stolen numberplates recovered
On 2 Nov 2021, Surrey Police has posted an appeal for dashcam evidence on their Guildford Beat Facebook site. The Police has published a photo of a cache of recovered number plates that have been stolen from vehicles on either 30th or 31st October 2021. Police are appealing to residents to provide dashcam evidence to the police to identify the offenders.
Police statement following Haloween Anti Social Behaviour (ASB)
We have today recovered a collection of discarded number plates in #ASH. We have returned any plates that we can identify the owners of. However, we believe this to be a bout of ASB from the weekend rather than plates being stolen for more nefarious purposes.
We spent much of the weekend responding to various reports of anti-social behaviour over the past Halloween weekend, including reports of Criminal Damage, Fireworks being set off at traffic and eggs being thrown. Multiple incidents were reported by members of the public to us, to which we responded, but unfortunately, we were unable to get hold of the offenders in many of the cases.
We are keen to identify offenders so that we then look to apply penalty. This can include measures like Community Protection Notices with which we can apply conditions to them, through to Criminal Behaviour Orders and Prosecution through the courts.
If you have any CCTV, Dashcam or photos of potential offenders from the evening of the 30th or 31st of OCTOBER, please contact us with the footage and/or stills so that we can use it to try and identify the offenders. You can do this by simply sending us a message on Facebook and you’ll be put in contact with our Contact Centre Officers who will be able to direct your evidence to the relevant teams.
Please continue to report incidents to us, and we will continue to deal with offenders where we can identify them!
