Four people were arrested after police unearthed stolen cars and car parts on a farm in Chertsey.

A large number of vehicles and car parts believed to have been stolen were unearthed by Surrey Police at Green Acres Farm in Chertsey.

Officers from Surrey Neighbourhood Policing Team, Roads Policing Unit and dogs assisted in a search of the property and quickly arrested those now in custody.

Announcing news of the raid on Tuesday (April 30), Surrey Police said the arrests mark only the first act in what they expect to be a far-reaching investigation into the suspected criminality surrounding the stolen cars and spare parts found on the farm.

The location where the mass of automotive equipment was found remains under a police cordon while further investigations continue.

A spokesperson for Surrey Police said: "A further search of the site uncovered a large number of vehicles which are believed to have been stolen.

"A substantial police cordon remains in place while identification and examination takes place."

Meanwhile, police revealed basic information about the four people arrested in connection with the bust at Green Acres Farm.

The four people arrested were:

  • A 45-year-old man from Chertsey
  • A 53-year-old man from Chertsey
  • A 37-year-old man from Ottershaw
  • A 39-year-old woman from Addlestone

All four remain in custody at present.

In a statement released following the raid, Detective Inspector Ria Holmes said the arrests followed a substantial first stage of an ongoing investigation by Surrey Police, and urged any members of the public who might have information about Green Acres Farm or the suspected criminality linked to the case to come forward.

DI Holmes said: "Our search of the site has uncovered a large number of vehicles and car parts which are believed to be stolen and were in the process of being dismantled.

"This is the early stages of what will be a complex investigation to identify and examine all the evidence. We will continue to update the public as and when we can.
