A man has been arrested after an alleged stolen van with false number plates was seized in our area.
The Transit van was taken off the streets in Guisborough on Friday after Cleveland Police officers arrested a man.
A picture of the white van was posted on Facebook by East Cleveland Neighbourhood Police Team.
The alleged stolen vehicle is understood to have had false registration plates and was being driven by a suspected banned driver.
Police are asking householders to check private CCTV following a number of alleged burglaries.
A man has been arrested on suspicion of burglary and on suspicion of attempted burglary after police received three reports of addresses on Addington Avenue in Pallister Park being targeted between around 2am and 2.30am on Friday.
He was released under investigation while inquiries continue.
One householder was reportedly left shaken though physically unharmed after disturbing a man who had gained entry to her home in the early hours.
Officers investigating the alleged burglary and alleged attempted burglaries believe other houses may also have been targeted but that other incidents may have gone unnoticed or unreported at this stage.
They are now asking anyone in the area who has private CCTV to check their systems to see if anything suspicious has been captured - and to contact police if this is the case.
Anyone else with information regarding any suspicious activity in the area the early hours of Friday morning is asked to contact DC Kate Brodie via the 101 number, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
