Good afternoon Citizen

Another update of our Operation Trident proactive policing in Consett, Stanley and Chester le Street for you. We have had another busy week in West Durham, thanks to some great information provided by our community. Here’s a very little snapshot of what we have been up to over the last 7 days;
On Saturday, police were called to Tantobie in Stanley following a report of a road traffic collision. The 66 year old driver was subsequently arrested having failed the roadside breath test. He was later charged with drink driving and bailed to court next month.
Also on Saturday, Consett police officers attended the Front Street in relation to a report of a fight ongoing. A 32 year old female was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence and assaulting police who attended. She was subsequently charged with 4 counts of assaulting an emergency worker and will be appearing at court next month.
On Sunday police from Consett responded to a concern regarding a potential drink driver. Officers subsequently arrested a 28 year old man in connection with the offence who subsequently failed to provide a specimen for analysis. He was reported for failing to provide, driving without insurance and otherwise in accordance with a licence. He will be appearing at court in the coming weeks.
In the early hours of Monday morning in Grange Villa, Chester le Street, officers attended the village following reports that a man was trying door handles in the locality. A 43 man was located by police and was arrested in connection with theft and also identified as being wanted for a burglary. He has since been dealt with in custody and was charged with 5 offences including burglary, theft, and driving offences. He has been remanded into custody awaiting trial at court.
On Tuesday morning in Great Lumley, Chester le Street, police were called to a report of an elderly vulnerable who was missing. A large number of officers from both Durham and Northumbria Police were involved in the search and investigation to locate the missing gentleman. A media appeal was also posted and with the assistance from the public, the man was found by police and was returned to be back safely with his family.
Late on Wednesday evening officers from Stanley directed a silver VW Golf to stop. The vehicle made off and following a pursuit the vehicle was abandoned in Catchgate. The vehicle was subsequently seized by police and evidence located within. An investigation is ongoing.
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.
