Police warning after rural break-ins in Guildford area
Residents living in remote areas of the borough of Guildford have been urged to step up their security following several break-ins over the past week.
Surrey Police said rural properties were being specifically targeted, with a farm in Send losing six sheep, one chicken and a turkey, worth about £800.
In another incident, a steel cattle trough and a jerry can full of petrol were taken from a barn in Worplesdon.
A stable block in Pirbright and a tack room in Abinger were also targeted.
Surrey Police has urged residents to join its Country Watch scheme, which uses a text alert system to pass on information about crimes and suspicious activity in isolated sections of the community.
