Detectives from Sussex, Surrey, Kent and Thames Valley Police are hunting for these men who could be responsible for dozens of break-ins across the region.

A three-week burglary campaign is currently being run across the four force areas –the first time a campaign has been co-ordinated across all four at the same time to tackle the issue.

As part of the on-going campaign, details of some of the most wanted burglary suspects are being issued to the public in a bid to help find them.

The men police are looking for are:

– Billy Foster, 20, of no fixed address, is wanted on suspicion of burglary in Smallfield, Surrey, on 6 April 2014 during which £15,000 was stolen. He is also wanted on warrant for failing to answer bail after he was arrested on suspicion of theft.

– Stefan Grigor, 38, of no fixed address, is wanted on suspicion of attempted burglary on a home in Cleaves Avenue, Ewell on 15 July 2014.

– James Hanrahan, 21, is wanted in connection with a burglary in Ridgeway Close in Camberley, in January. He is also wanted on recall to prison after he was released on licence partway through a 12 month sentence for dangerous driving.

– Max Nevin, 22, of Hastings Road, Battle. Nevin is wanted in connection with a series of burglaries at the same home in Witherenden Hill, Burwash Common, in December 2013 and January 2014. He is also wanted on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and failing to answer bail.

– Simon Knights, 38, is wanted for questioning about seven burglaries in Sussex, an attempted burglary in Sussex, three burglaries in Hampshire and one in each of Kent and Essex since 12 June. A £2,500 reward is being offered for information that leads to a conviction for at least one of the offences.

– Convicted burglar Simon Bercowitz is wanted for recall to prison for breaching the terms of his licence after he was released part way through a five and a half year sentence for a series of break-ins in Hampshire. It is thought the 64-year-old, of Marine Parade, Brighton, could be committing further offences.

– David Powell is wanted in connection with three burglaries in the Gravesend area between 25 and 27 February. Powell is 26 and has connections with the Gravesend area and London.

– Police want to speak to Patrick Doran about a burglary in Lennox Road, Gravesend, on 16 September. Doran is 39 and has connections throughout Kent and also in the Northampton area.

– Vasile Rotaru was arrested on suspicion of committing two burglaries in Farnham Common, in March 2012 but after being released while officers carried out further inquiries he did not answer bail and is now wanted.

– Felipe Teixeira is wanted for questioning over a series of offences in Crawley. Officers want to speak to him about burglaries in Curteys Walk, Cowfold Close and Windsor Close in Crawley in July and August this year.

Members of the public are being urged to keep an eye out for these men and to call 999 if they see any of them.

Residents are also being asked to report anyone acting suspiciously in their area or vehicles that are seen being parked or driven at unusual times of the day or in roads they are not normally seen in.

Surrey Police Superintendent Jerry Westerman said: “We need the public’s help to track down and arrest each of these men.

“We believe they could have been involved in a number of burglaries and we need to speak to them as soon as possible.

“If you see any of them, or know where they have been or could be, please contact us immediately.

“What you see and report to us could prevent you, one of your family, friends or neighbours from becoming a victim of burglary.”

Recent updates during the campaign in Surrey include:

Gheorghita Onisei, 47, of Weydon Hill Road, Farnham appeared at Guildford Magistrates Courton Wednesday 5 November charged with five counts of burglary. He has been remanded in custody and will next appear at Guildford Crown Court on 27 November.

DEAD: Sally Jones Britain’s Most Wanted Woman and Islamic State Recruiter Killed



The White Widow Sally Jones has been Killed in a US Drone Strike, Jones who had planned many terror attacks fled the UK to become a IS Recruiter.

She was Britain’s Most Wanted Woman. It is believed she died in a US Air Force Drone Strike which happened near to the border of Syria and Iraq.

Jones was killed in June 2017, with the news kept hush because of fears that her 12-year-old son may have also been killed.

Jones left her home in Chatham, Kent in 2013 with her son Jojo to join Islamic State in Syria. During this time she often used her son as a human shield to save her own life.

The CIA and MI6 spent months tracking down Jones before they launched a Drone Strike and killed her.

She played a key role in the recruitment of young females becoming jihadis often leaving their families in the middle of the night to head out and join the Islamic State.

Despite the claims that Jones is dead, the US cannot 100 percent be sure she is dead, as they made no attempt to recover any DNA, But they are very confident that she is dead.

Drone Strikes are very clever in the way they work as they are able to follow targets for a number of weeks before launching a missile attack without any civilians being killed.

However, they cannot confirm if 12-year-old brainwashed Jojo has been killed also, something which the Americans could face a backlash over.

Jojo was brainwashed he faced years of forced lessons in radical Islam & firearms training. He recently featured within an IS execution video standing behind a row of prisoners who was kneeling on the floor before pulling the trigger and murdering them.

Jones converted to Islam and was nicknamed the White Widow after her Islamic State husband Junaid Hussain was killed by a drone in 2015.

Hussain aged 21 and from Birmingham brainwashed Jones to such a degree she became head of recruitment for young women and schoolgirls within the Islamic State.

Jones & Hussain planned many attacks across Europe and America and is believed to have been a key recruiter and brainwasher of many wanting to join the Islamic State.

Jones was linked to the planning of a number of major terror attacks including one which planned to blow up the Queen and Prince Philip on the streets of London during the VJ celebrations.
