Information sent on behalf of Surrey Police

We would like to hear from anyone who saw or heard damage taking place at Heathervale Recreation Ground Parkside on Monday evening (13 September). Included in the damage was some scaffolding, temporary fencing and the community defibrillator and cabinet which is costing hundreds of pounds to repair and replace. 

We have been pointed towards discussion in local Facebook groups about a particular peer group who have been causing anti-social behaviour in New Haw, Woodham and Byfleet generally. Please pass us your information (reference 45210097968 so that we can develop the overall picture and expand on descriptions, direction of travel and who is considered to be causing the trouble. 

We will be patrolling this weekend and talking to service users. If you witness suspicious or aggressive behaviour please report it by calling 101 or 999 in an emergency.  
You can also speak to Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 if you have information to pass about this particular occurrence.

We are appealing for witnesses after a Cannabis factory containing approximately 1,000 mature plants was discovered above a shop in Staines Town Centre last week.

Officers arrived at the scene on September 9 to find a fortified steel gate preventing them accessing the second floor. With the help of Surrey Fire and Rescue Service this was cut and when they got upstairs they found multiple rooms filled with Cannabis plants.

Potential suspects were seen running across the roof towards the iron bridge and were described as speaking with an Eastern European accent.

Chief Inspector Dallas McDermott who attended the location with officers from the Spelthorne Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “This is a significant disruption to an organised group of criminals who were getting ready to harvest this substantial crop and the impact will no doubt hit them hard. Our enquiries are ongoing to identify those responsible and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the public for their assistance."

If you have any information which could help, please report online using quoting crime reference number PR/45210095572. If you do not wish to leave your name, please call the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
