Two closure orders were successfully secured for houses in Guisborough and Grangetown yesterday.
The activity in both houses was causing misery to those living in neighbouring properties and bringing antisocial behaviour to the area and led to Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council applying to magistrates for closure orders.
One of the properties in Patten Lane in Guisborough was closed for a month after the Guisborough Neighbourhood Police Team along with Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council and Beyond Housing worked together to build a case to apply for a closure order.
The other property in Eastcroft Road in Grangetown was closed after a closure order was granted by Teesside Magistrates' Court.
Drug dealing activity and antisocial behaviour had been reported to police over several months, and Eston Neighbourhood Officers and Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council had worked together to gather evidence to present to Teesside Magistrates' Court.
The occupants were evicted and the house will now be closed for three months.
Police are thanking members of the public for their help during an alleged incident in Middlesbrough on Thursday.
Officers were called to a report of an altercation outside Gold Factors jewellers on Linthorpe Road in the town at around 3.45pm.
On their arrival a man had been detained by staff and customers from the jewellers and from nearby stores after allegedly stealing a large quantity of gold and silver jewellery.
The 42-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary, and he was taken into police custody for questioning.
Most of the jewellery was retrieved at the scene however some items were taken from passing members of the public who then left the scene, and officers are appealing for the items' return.
Initial enquiries have revealed that a number of people who were in the area at the time were filming the alleged incident and we ask them to kindly upload any footage which could assist on-going enquiries via the Cleveland Police website.
