Stolen goods worth more than £2,000 have been recovered by officers investigating a burglary in New Ash Green.

The break-in is reported to have taken place on 14 October 2023, when a yard was entered at a builders’ merchant in Ash Road.

On Tuesday 21 November, officers from the Sevenoaks Neighbourhood Task Force searched a location off Billet Hill, Ash. They seized multiple items reported stolen, including more than 30 fence panels and eight gas cannisters.

At around the same time, a 40-year-old man was arrested in the Otford area in connection with theft, drink driving, and animal cruelty offences. An investigation is being led by the West Kent Victim based Crime Team and the suspect is currently bailed with conditions to return to a police station on 9 February 2024.
