Good Afternoon Citizen

As we come into the last week in August, we bring the last summer update for Operation Trident for our positive proactive policing in your community. Here’s a snapshot of what our police officers have recently been up to in and around West Durham from Consett, Stanley and Chester le Street…

Last weekend officers from Consett arrested a 31 year old man in connection with an assault which occurred on Consett Front Street where the victim sustained serious injuries. Following an investigation by our CID teams, the arrested man was charged with assault causing grievous bodily harm and he was remanded to court.

On Monday morning officers from Consett searched a man and his vehicle in the vicinity of Iveston. Cannabis was located during the search and the man was deal with by means of a street caution.

On Thursday police from our Chester le Street response teams searched an address in the Northumbria Police area following intelligence that stolen property from Darlington was at the location. The stolen property was recovered and an investigation is ongoing.

On Friday officers from Chester le Street arrested a 32 year man who was wanted for a shoplifting. The man was also found to be in possession of class B drugs. He has been charged with theft and possession of a control substance. He was further wanted on recall to prison and is now behind bars.

Also on Friday, officers from Stanley located a 38 year old female who was wanted in connection with two shopliftings and for having failed to appear at court. She was arrested and also found to be in possession of suspected controlled drugs. She was subsequently charged and remanded to court. The investigation in relation to the drugs is ongoing.

Over recent weeks our neighbourhood team at Stanley have been working hard to tackle anti-social behaviour at South Moor golf course. A number of youths have been located on the golf course and several have been taken home and spoken to in front of their parents. All those involved have also been referred to the anti-social behaviour interventions team at Durham County Council to deal with the ASB and deter the area being used as a playground.

As always, you as the public help make all of this possible! If you have concerns about any crime or criminality in your neighbourhood please give us a call on 101 or use the LiveChat on our force website. You can also contact Crime Stoppers if you wish to remain anonymous. Please do not attempt to report incidents through our Facebook inbox as all incidents need to be recorded and dispatched by our control room.
