Redcar residents are warned not to hand over money to unexpected callers after a suspicious incident yesterday.
It comes after police received a report of a suspicious man asking a Kirkleatham householder for money yesterday lunchtime.
A white man, in his 40s and wearing a khaki "army style" jacket called at a householder's back door asking him for a large sum of money to clear debris left over from authorised tree pruning and felling on nearby Plantation Road.
The resident declined, sending the man away without handing any money over and contacted the local authority, who recommended he should report this to police.
Police say that while they have not currently received any similar reports, they are advising residents not to engage with unexpected callers and to never hand over money for work which they have not asked for or authorized.
A man has been charged after a knife was discovered during a search of a vehicle yesterday afternoon.
The car had been seen on Linthorpe Road, travelling on to Borough Road then Marton Road where it was stopped and searched, along with its occupants.
The 21-year-old man was arrested interviewed and charged with possession of a bladed article.
He was remanded to appear at Teesside Magistrates' Court.
