Tyne Valley burglaries: update

Northumbria Police have made a significant breakthrough in the operation to tackle burglaries in the Tyne Valley.
On 5th November a 46 year old male from Newcastle was arrested and has now been charged with 7 recent burglaries; he is remanded in custody pending trial.

Since the male's arrest no similar house burglaries further to the recent spate have been reported.

Levels of house burglary have abated across Tynedale. 

We still need to remain vigilant, report any suspicious people, vehicles or behaviour and take sensible crime prevention steps when leaving the house. 

However residents should be reassured that this male is now remanded in custody.
