Armed police were called after reports of 'shots' being fired and a house window smashed in Guisborough.
Two loud bangs were reported to have been heard in the Pine Road area of the town, close to the King George V playing fields on Tuesday evening.
People living nearby took to social media to report seeing armed police officers in and around neighbouring streets through the night and into the early hours of the morning.
A Cleveland Police spokesman confirmed the force had responded to a report of smashed window at a house on Pine Road which was believed to have been shot with a gun.
No one was injured in the incident.
Three males aged 20, 21 and 22 have been arrested in connection with the incident and enquiries are ongoing.
Police are appealing for information following a burglary in Eston.
The incident happened at a property on Glastonbury Road, sometime between 11:00pm on Monday and 6.40am on Tuesday.
The suspects are believed to have entered the property and taken items including sets of keys and made off in a Ford Kuga, which was stolen from the victim.
The vehicle then travelled along Exeter Road, Churchill Road and Fabian Road before being involved in a collision on Clynes Road.
Four males described as wearing dark clothing made off on foot from the vehicle and enquiries are ongoing to identify them.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
A man who breached a domestic violence protection order has been given a two-week custodial sentence.
The 52-year-old was alleged to have assaulted a woman in East Cleveland on the night of Wednesday 21st July.
The woman cannot be named in order to protect her identity.
Officers discovered the man was subject to a domestic violence protection order which was issued on the 6th of this month.
He was therefore arrested on suspicion of assault and on suspicion of breach of a domestic violence protection order, and was charged to Northumbria Magistrates' Court where he was found guilty of both offences.
The man will now go to prison for 14 days while his victim continues to receive support from Cleveland Police.
