A number of people have been arrested and charged following two weeks of proactive working with partner agencies to tackle moped crime and burglary in Epsom and Ewell.
Local officers, along with the Roads Policing Unit and other teams worked together, and as a result officers arrested three men linked to a moped-enabled crime, who were later charged with a number of offences, and two men for burglary.
Officers also seized vehicles for no insurance, issued tickets, generated valuable intelligence and arrested a man for driving while disqualified and theft.
Borough Commander Joe Easterbrook said: “I am pleased to say that this proactive operation has proved successful and that we will be holding further days of action with our partners in the coming weeks.
"We value the information the public give us, and we want to remind our local communities to get in touch if they see anything suspicious or they have been the victim of a crime.
"This recent activity shows that we will react robustly and bring offenders to justice, to make the borough a safer place for our residents.
"Now that the nights are getting longer, we strongly
advise everyone to think seriously about home security. Burglars love the dark nights and they love an easy target.
"There is often an increase in burglaries at this time of year when the evenings get darker for longer, so it is important to make sure that your property is secure when you go out!"
