Police have released CCTV footage of two men and a van driver they would like to speak to in connection with a ram raid at JD Sports at Teesside Retail Park.

The incident occurred on Thursday 17th May at 11:20pm when a white transit style van reverse rammed in to the store.

Two men wearing balaclavas and hooded tops took Lacoste polo shirts, t-shirts and hoodies worth thousands of pounds from the store and then left the scene.

Ten minutes after the incident, a member of the public reported a white van on fire in Balmoral Avenue in Thornaby and officers believe this is the vehicle involved in the ram raid.

The clothing has high tech security devices still attached and these will spray coloured ink onto the clothes if tampered with.

Anyone who may have seen or been offered Lacoste clothing for sale, or with any other information, is asked to contact Cleveland Police on the non-emergency 101 number, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

 

An Australian firm bringing up to 140 jobs to Teesside has welcomed a substantial milestone in the project after planning permission was granted by the local council.

The £70m development will produce materials used to make powerful magnets.

Processing rare earth ore imported from Tanzania, the finished product will be placed in items including mobile phones, wind turbines and cars.

Once operational, up to 140 permanent staff will be needed.

An environment licence application is now with the Environment Agency, with a decision expected later this year.

 

Next week is Rural Crime Week and officers from the Guisborough Neighbourhood Policing Team are holding property marking events in a number of venues in our area.

The events will be held at Farm Direct Country Store in Easington on Thursday 31st May between 2pm-5pm and then Cleveland Country Store in Brotton on Friday 1st June between 3pm-5pm.

Members of the public are invited to go along to the events and have property security marked for free.

It's also an opportunity to chat to your local officers who will be there to listen to any concerns about your local area.
