Two men in their 20s have been arrested following cooking oil thefts in Ashford.
The oil was stolen from several business in Kennington on two separate occasions in June.
A van believed to be linked to the offences was stopped by officers in Fougeres Way on Tuesday and two men from north London were arrested.
The two suspects have since been released on bail and inquiries remain ongoing.
Cooking oil was stolen from businesses in Eureka Place including Cinnamon Spice, Pizza Hut and the Eureka Cafe.
Following the incident, Ashford district commander chief inspector Nick Sparkes said: "We advise any businesses who store cooking oil to make sure they have adequate security arrangements and any containers are not on show to potential thieves.
"Companies should review their alarm systems and CCTV cameras, as these will not only deter thieves but also make it easier for us to recover stolen goods and identify offenders in the event of any theft.
"We also advise that areas where cooking oil is stored are well-lit and items such as wheelie bins are stored away, to prevent them being used to access buildings or scale fences."
