Newton Aycliffe Police Update


The teams at Newton Aycliffe have been dealing with a wide variety of incidents this week including concerns for safety, missing people, criminal damage, domestic disputes among others. Here is a few snap shots from the week;

The week began with PCSO’s Kipling & Middleton responding to a report of Shoplifting in the Town Centre on Monday. Soon after the report they located two males matching their description who had a number of stolen items on them. Colleagues from Response attended and transported the males to Newton Aycliffe Police Station where they were interviewed and admitted to 6 shoplifting offences.

Officers have been making enquiries relating to a number of vehicle damages which occurred overnight into the 22nd around Bowes Road/Hopper Road/Finchale Road area. House to house and CCTV enquiries are still ongoing in relation to this.

Officers have upped patrols in the Town Centre on an evening after a rise in calls relation to Anti-Social Behaviour in this area. A number of youths have been identified as being part of the group & have been moved on from the area. We are linking in with our partners at the Council ASB team and 21 referrals have been sent off over the course of this weekend – these youths will be on the escalation process for Anti-Social Behaviour.

Colleagues on Response executed a warrant on Wednesday morning at an address in Arncliffe Place. During the search, a small amount of class B drugs were located as well as cash, in excess of £3,500. A 32 year-old man arrested on suspicion of Money Laundering and Possession of class ‘B’ drugs. He has since been released under investigation whilst enquiries continue.

On Wednesday evening colleagues from the Road Policing Unit responded to a report of a suspected drink driver in the Sid Chaplin Area. A male failed a roadside breath test and was subsequently arrested for a number of offences, including Resist Arrest and Assault of an Emergency Worker.

Another male was arrested the same night on Moore Lane after crashing his vehicle and also failed the roadside breath test. The male was taken to custody, charged and bailed and will attend Court at the end of the month.

PCSO’s conducted a Herbert Protocol on Saturday for a male who suffers from dementia. These forms allow for a better response in case the person goes missing and gives officers essential information quickly about where the person might be. If you know somebody who is suffering from dementia and is at risk of going missing and would like one of these, please contact the local team on Facebook by private message or pop into the Front Counter.

On January 20th we received a report of a theft of a “Whacker Plate” from a Unit on the Industrial Estate. This occurred between 0400hrs on Jan 12th and 0700hrs on Jan 13th. Enquiries are ongoing in relation to this.

Colleagues on Response responded to a report that an old lady had fallen in her address and had been there for a number of hours. Officers attended and forced entry to the address in order to help and the lady was OK.
