A Sutton man who was linked to keyless car thefts and knife point robberies has been jailed. 

An investigation was launched on January 3 when a Range Rover which had been stolen from Sutton was stopped by Surrey Police officers. 

The driver was arrested and officers discovered he had been paid to transport the stolen vehicle. 

They later identified Billy Raddon, 22, from Sutton, as being involved in the theft of the Range Rover. 

He was arrested at an address in Morden where officers found a safe with over £3,000 in cash, keys and cocaine. 

They also found an electronic device which is believed to be used in keyless car thefts, known as relay thefts. 

Police also linked Raddon to a knife point robbery which took place in Caterham in December 2022. 

During the robbery a Mercedes was stolen and videos on Raddon’s phone showed him inside the car as he drove it towards Sutton. 

Raddon later pleaded guilty to multiple offences including theft of a motor vehicle and robbery.

Detective Constable McBain, from Surrey’s Proactive Investigation Team said: “Thanks to the hard work by everyone involved, we have been able to piece together his crimes spanning over a few months. 

“Vehicle theft can have a huge financial impact on the victim and Raddon had not regard to how their crimes might affect the lives of their victims.
