A KNAPHILL woman made a terrifying discovery when she woke up to find her handbag had been stolen from inside her home and her car taken.

Two men from Horsell have been arrested following the incident  which took place in Anchor Hill in the early hours of Wednesday (July 4).

During the early hours of Thursday (July 5) plain clothes officers spotted the woman’s black Vauxhall Astra driving past them in Little Heath Road, Chobham.

The occupants ran from the car as soon as they saw the police officers approaching.

But further investigations made during the night led to the arrests of two men.

A 22-year-old man and an 18 year old have been arrested on suspicion of burglary and bailed until September 6.

Detetive Constable Dionne Stamp said: “Having your house burgled causes no end of misery and heartache which is why we will do everything possible to catch those responsible and bring them to justice.”
