Detectives are appealing for witnesses who may have seen a vehicle following a burglary in Loftus in the early hours of Friday morning.

A black Nissan Navara pick-up truck with two occupants may have been seen prior to or after a burglary at the Morrisons Daily store on Zetland Road around twenty to three on Friday morning.

The Navara was used to smash the window of the shop, sustaining rear end damage, before two suspects entered the store and stole goods.

They made off in the vehicle with items including spirits, vape pens and food.  

Anyone who may have seen the vehicle prior to or after the burglary or anyone with information, is asked to call Cleveland Police on 101.

 

Police are investigating a report of an attempted robbery in Guisborough in which the suspect was apparently bitten by the victim’s dog.

The incident happened on Thursday evening at around 7.45pm as the young woman was walking her dogs near the back of Gisborough Hall.

The male grabbed her arm and demanded she hand over her mobile phone, however the dog came to its owner’s defence and bit him on the right forearm.

The suspect is described as a white male, wearing a black shell top or waterproof jacket with the hood up, black gloves.

He may have had his face covered.

Anyone who has information or who knows of a male with a recent dog bite to his right arm to contact Cleveland Police via the 101 number.

 

Police say that they have recorded the lowest number of thefts from vehicles in Redcar for more than two years.

In November there were NO reports of theft from cars in Redcar, and across the town’s nine wards (which include Marske and New Marske) there were just three reports that month.

This is the lowest figure for the area since April 2021, which was a Covid lockdown period when all categories of crime showed low figures.

Officers have thanked all those residents who provided community intelligence, passed on CCTV and gave statements in order to make the results possible.
