Police in Redcar have arrested a man following a number of thefts in the town.
On around 9pm on Thursday evening CCTV captured a man climbing into a garden on West Dyke Road after making off from officers.
He was later arrested after being found face down in the mud trying to hide in a bush.
The man is currently in police custody and will be interviewed in relation to five thefts and two public order offences.
Neighbourhood officers from Saltburn are continuing their efforts to tackle issues of antisocial behaviour around the areas of Valley Gardens, Milton Street, Station Square, Dundas Street and Sainsbury’s.
Over the last week, additional officers have patrolled the area and a dispersal order was put in place from the evening of Monday 9th April to Wednesday 11th April. The dispersal order was deemed successful as no youths were given a dispersal notice.
Another dispersal order was put in place for 48 hours beginning at 5pm yesterday, aimed at groups of three or more youths hanging around in these areas. It will cover the areas of Marine Parade, Milton Street, Zetland Terrace, Marske Road, Windsor Road, Glenside and Saltburn Road.
Anyone found to be committing offences in these areas will be issued with a notice which means that they cannot re-enter the specified areas for a specific length of time, therefore reducing the risk of them re-offending in the area.
Police are also planning on attending secondary schools in Saltburn and across Redcar and Cleveland to discuss antisocial behaviour and the affects that it has on people and local communities.
Police have warned the public of potential travel disruption in our area on Monday morning.
Cleveland Police say they have received information that a protest may possibly take place on Monday morning on Tees Dock Road.
Previous protests have caused major traffic delays and disruption to motorists.
Those making a journey on Monday morning are advised to allow extra time and to take alternative routes where possible.
