A man has been charged with begging and drugs offences in Redcar.

A 34-year-old man was arrested on Saturday evening near Tesco on West Dyke Road.

He has now been charged with begging in a public place and with possession of a Class A drug.

The man was bailed and is due to attend Teesside Magistrates' Court in June.

The arrest comes after a dispersal order was put in place recently and increased patrols have been taking place in affected areas.

Any issues can be reported to Cleveland Police at any time via the non-emergency number 101.

 

A man from Grangetown has appeared in court after being charged with alleged firearm and drug offences.

Officers from Cleveland Police attended Broadway in Grangetown in the early hours of Friday.

They recovered a firearm and suspected Class A drugs.

57-year-old Shaun Harrison was charged with possession of a firearm and possession with intent to supply Class A drugs and remanded in custody.

Mr Harrison, of Broadway in Grangetown, appeared at Teesside Magistrates’ Court on Saturday morning.

He was further remanded in custody until his next court appearance on June 18th.

Cleveland Police say detectives are continuing their investigation into recent firearms offences in Grangetown, which has so far resulted in several arrests.

 

Two men charged following enquiries into separate alleged violent incidents, Middlesbrough.

In the past week a 44-year-old man was remanded into custody after appearing at Teesside Magistrates' Court having been charged with possession of a knife in a public place, and with Section 18 assault.

The charge follows an investigation by Middlesbrough CID into a report of a 45-year-old man being stabbed on Thornton Street last Thursday. The victim remains in hospital in a stable condition.

And following an unrelated incident in which two women (aged 23 and 43) reported being followed by a man in a white van near Teesside University campus and then assaulted, uniformed officer colleagues quickly located and arrested a 23-year-old man whereupon Middlesbrough CID took over enquiries into the incident which was alleged to have taken place in the early hours of Saturday.

The man was interviewed and subsequently charged with attempted kidnap, two counts of assault, taking a vehicle without the owner's consent, driving whilst uninsured, failing to provide a specimen for analysis and assaulting an emergency worker.

He appeared at Teesside Magistrates' Court yesterday.
