Investigations are ongoing and enquiries continuing.

Inspector Joe Easterbrook, Borough Commander for Epsom and Ewell said: “We are working hard to eradicate this problem and its associated anti-social behaviour, but we can’t do this without the help of the public so I am asking you to help and report tangible information on drug dealing in your area. Our investigation into these individuals will continue while we carry out searches and proactive patrols in the area.”

If you have information about suspected drug dealing or crime in your area, please either contact Surrey Police via www.surrey.police.uk or by calling 101.

What to look out for:

  • Lots of visitors, who don’t stay very long, arriving at all times of the day and night
  • People waiting in cars outside particular properties exchanging small packets or cash
  • Lots of visitors bringing items such as T.V’s or bikes but leaving empty handed
  • Lone/vulnerable neighbours suddenly having groups of young men living at their address

What Surrey Police want to know:

  • Time, date and place
  • Vehicle registrations and the make, model and colour
  • Descriptions of people and details of what they were doing
  • Direction they travelling to and from
  • How many times you have seen them – is it always at the same time of day?

Don’t put yourself at risk while gathering this information. Please always pass the information to the police and do not confront or approach suspected drug dealers.
