An update from our Police Safer Neighbourhood Team:
Shoplifter in Central Road
Worcester Park and Nonsuch PCSOs Gary Weaving and Nadine Campbell responded to a report of a man shoplifting in Central Road on Friday, 17 April. The suspect was detained as he left St Raphael’s Hospice shop. A suitcase that had been linked to the suspect was recovered and found to contain more than £170 worth of suspected stolen goods from several charity shops. Two PCs arrived and arrested the man. The recovered goods were returned to the shops.
Following information from the local community, officers from Worcester Park and Nonsuch Safer Neighbourhoods Teams carried out a warrant at an address in Worcester Park on Tuesday, 28 April. The address was searched and a small quantity of suspected cannabis was found. There were no arrests but a man was issued with a cannabis warning.
Sgt Andy De’Voreaux, of Worcester Park & Nonsuch Safer Neighbourhoods Teams, organised a series of plain clothes patrols over four days in Waitrose, Stone Place, Worcester Park, in an effort to discourage shoplifters. On Wednesday, 29 April, three men were seen to exit the store without paying for goods and were arrested for shoplifting and theft offences.

If you see a crime in progress or anyone acting suspiciously, such as someone hanging around outside a house or around a vehicle, please call police on 999. You will not be wasting our time. We would rather come out and check that everything is OK than to find that someone has become a victim of crime.
