Good morning all,


I want to make you aware of the great work which took place on THURSDAY 9TH OF MAY 2024. A shop safe radio call was made that a male and female were actively shoplifting in WAITROSE, SEVENOAKS. PC COSTIN and PC WILSON have quickly attended the location, located both and were subsequently arrested for shoplifting related offences.


Kent Police Dover on X:


PC Tom COSTIN said "This was an excellent result with working with local stores and businesses to get a positive outcome and to arrest suspects committing shopliftings in local stores in SEVENOAKS.  It is important for local retailers to continue reporting crime so that offenders can be identified and brought to justice like in this case".


Many thanks,
