Woking man jailed for stealing Porsche 911 and £25K of jewellery

Woking man jailed for stealing Porsche 911 and £25K of jewellery

Published by Josh Kerr at 2:01pm 20th September 2019. (Updated at 9:31am 22nd September 2019)

A Woking man has been jailed after admitting stealing a Porsche 911 and other offences. 

Paul Edward Brabin of Meadway Drive will serve four years behind bars and was also banned from driving for three years.

He broke into a home on Ridgeway in Horsell in August, stealing £25,000 of watches, electronics, jewellery, and the keys to the Porsche 911 while the owner was on holiday. 

Surrey Police received a call from a member of the public during the early hours of that morning.

They reported that the Porsche had driven through the roundabout on Hermitage Road causing damage to a pillar and a lamppost.

It was later found abandoned with extensive damage, but locked and secure at Goldsworth Park.

Subsequent enquiries showed Brabin carrying out the burglary on CCTV footage and linked him to handling stolen goods in relation to another burglary. 

Detective Sergeant Lee Marks said:

“I hope this sentence provides the victims of these burglaries with some comfort to help them to move on with their lives in the knowledge that Brabin has been given a custodial sentence.

“I’d urge people to think about their home security, especially as the nights draw in.

"You can find crime prevention advice on our website, but I’d highlight to people that items like car keys shouldn’t be left near to doors or windows where they can easily be seen or obtained by burglars”.
