A teenager has been charged with a string of offences after police spotted a suspected drugs deal in Middlesbrough.

Plain clothed officers from Middlesbrough’s Proactive Team spotted the alleged exchange on Ingoldsby Road, in Netherfields, on Sunday, May 26 and later stopped a male on a motorbike.

Cleveland Police seized a quantity of suspected drugs, believed to be class A and class B, a large amount of cash and a lock knife. A subsequent search of a property led officers to seize more suspected drugs, believed to be class C, a large knife and drug paraphernalia.

A 15-year-old boy was arrested and charged with two counts of possession with intent to supply class A drugs and possession with intent to supply class C drugs, possession of class B drugs, possession of a bladed article, assault on an emergency worker, driving otherwise in accordance with a licence and no insurance.

He was remanded in custody to appear at Teesside Magistrates’ Court on Monday, where he was bailed with conditions.

 

Three new police dogs have been licensed alongisde their handlers, to help protect the communities of Cleveland.

After undertaking an intensive training course since February, the new handlers and their dogs can now deploy onto the streets with their specialist skills and tactics.

Officers from Cumbria Police carried out assessments with each dog and handler on Friday, and the handlers were awarded their licensing certificates by Assistant Chief Constable David Felton.

Police dogs Trigger, Rheagar and Neo will now join other dogs within the Matrix Team, where there are a number of specialist disciplines including general purpose dogs, firearms support dogs, drugs, cash and weapons dogs, explosive dogs and a victim recovery dog.

Training continually takes place throughout their careers to keep up skills and accreditation, and to ensure they can be the best they can be to serve the public.
