A suspected burglar found on the roof of a Redcar sports store has been tasered by police.

In the early hours of Saturday morning, officers were called to JD Sports, in Regent Walk in Redcar, after receiving reports of an ongoing burglary.

On arrival a man was discovered on the roof of the shop and police were forced to fire a Taser to effect an arrest.

The 27-year-old was taken by officers to be checked over at hospital.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Teesside Magistrates’ Court yesterday.

 

Police are warning members of the public after prescription medication was stolen from a pharmacy on Linthorpe Road, Middlesbrough.

Pregablin and Zopiclone tablets were taken during a burglary at around 7am last Thursday.

Two men are believed to have forced entry to Pharmacy Express, one is believed to have been wearing a balaclava, tracksuit bottoms with a white stripe half way down the leg and he had a beard. The pair were carrying a black and white Puma bag. 

Anyone who may come across the stolen medication is reminded that taking tablets when not prescribed can be extremely harmful. Anyone who comes across medication in the street is asked to return it to the nearest pharmacy or local police station.

Information regarding the burglary can be passed to Detective Constable John Smith on the non-emergency number 101.

 

An outbreak of a deadly dog virus in the region has prompted a warning from vets.

Dog owners are being urged to ensure their pets' vaccinations are up to date after the deadly, and highly contagious, Parvovirus broke out in the Redcar area.

It is understood that the prolonged hot weather helped spread the virus, which mainly exists within the faeces of infected dogs and is normally washed away into the earth when it rains, causing no harm.

However without rain, the virus remains on the ground and is more likely to infect other dogs, especially because it can survive outside the body for many months.

Symptoms of the virus include diarrhoea, severe vomiting, loss of appetite or weight loss, dehydration, bloody faeces, a high temperature and lethargy.
