Trio face nearly 22 years behind bars for Guildford burglary

Published at 1:45pm 27th February 2018.

Three men from Surrey are facing a combined sentence of nearly 22 years for a burglary in Guildford.

They broke into a flat using a hammer in Edgeborough Road in April 2016, after shining a light at the victim and spraying him with a peppery substance.

The trio were then involved in a multi-car crash outside the Horse and Groom pub on Epsom Road.

After all three ran from the scene, one of the men, Kieran Telfer, was found in a nearby graveyard by police dog units.

Officers arrested him for driving with no insurance and driving whilst otherwise in accordance with his license. They also found stolen items from the burglary in the crashed vehicle.

The officer in charge of the case, Detective Constable Becky Thomson said: "We believe the three men sprayed the victim in the face to scare him, as he wouldn’t have known what the liquid was, and it could have been something more serious such as acid."

During the following two weeks both of the other men involved, Derren Moore and Troy Whitwell, were arrested after forensic evidence was found.

They were sentenced at Kingston Crown Court on Friday 23 February for the following:

  • Derren Moore, 22, from Stuart Road, Reigate was charged with burglary and possession of an offensive weapon, and received 81 months imprisonment and a £140 victim surcharge.
  • Kieran Telfer, 22, from Blackborough Road, Reigate was charged with burglary, possession of an offensive weapon and dangerous driving, and received 100 months imprisonment, a £140 victim surcharge and has been disqualified from driving for 2 years.
  • Troy Whitwell, 23, from Redhill was charged with burglary, and possession of an offensive weapon and received 81 months imprisonment and a £140 victim surcharge.

DC Thomson added: "We are really pleased with this fantastic result.

"Thanks to our officer’s hard work, three men have been taken off the streets, meaning that the public can feel safer."
