Operation Trident

Alert message sent 12/06/2020 14:41:00

Information sent on behalf of Durham Constabulary

Good afternoon Citizen

Once again we have been working hard to tackle criminality across West Durham in connection with Operation Trident. The work undertaken below is just a snapshot of what the police have proactively been up to in your area, thanks to information received by the community.
On Tuesday evening officers sighted a vehicle driving at speed through Annfield Plain, Stanley. Police subsequently stopped the vehicle and the driver was found to be driving without insurance. He was issued with a ticket for the offence and the vehicle was seized.
On Thursday in Chester le Street, officers were able to identify and arrest a man in connection with a theft and fraud which was reported to police. It was established that he had stolen a bank card left in a shop, and then went on to make fraudulent purchases in another store. Following the investigation the man was referred to the Durham Constabulary diversionary scheme Checkpoint to address the root of his offending.
In Stanley, members of the community reported woman was seen to be acting suspiciously. Officers attended and located the woman. She was found to be in possession with a syringe with a needle and threatened to stab the officers. Needless to say she was arrested and was subsequently charged.
This morning, a female from Consett was arrested for making threats to kill where it was reported to police that she had become aggressive with staff in a hospital and threatened to kill them by strangling them. She remains in custody and an investigation is ongoing.
Earlier this week officers received charging authority from the Crown Prosecution Service in relation to the investigation of a man from Chester le Street for the supply of drugs. This was following a warrant on the back of intelligence received from the community. The man will be appearing at court for possession with intent to supply both class A and class B drugs.
If you have any concerns about any criminality in your neighbourhood you can contact police on 101 or use the LiveChat facility on the Durham Police main website. You can also report any information anonymously to Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
Many thanks,
