Attempted burglary in Horley results in large police presence.

Multiple police and dog units and a helicopter alarmed residents.



A large police presence in Horley this afternoon alarmed many residents.

The Police got a call around 4pm to The Crescent Horley where a local resident had reported a suspicious male in the road looking at properties.

Police attended to search for the male and officers located a suspected person on Russell’s Crescent at which time the male ran from police and a foot chase began.

This resulted in the male using gardens and fences to aid his escape

As a result there was a huge increase in police resources including assistance by the national police air service and police dogs.

Enquiries are ongoing.

Advice from the police is to people who live in the area of Cheyne walk, Fairfield avenue and Russell’s Crescent and surrounding areas to check their gardens and contact police if any items that do not belong to them are found. Particulary black bags.

At this time the police believe the male has left the immediate vicinity

Please call 101 if you suspect something suspicious.
