Newton Aycliffe police officers are on the lookout for burglars after a spree of incidents were reported in the town.
As revealed by NPT Sergeant Mark Edwards in his blog on Aycliffe Today, between 2pm and 7.30pm on Saturday November 9, a house burglary occurred in the Acle Meadows area where offenders have forced open a rear ground floor window and entered within.
The same afternoon in Sorrel Wynd, people have tried to gain entry to a house by trying to force open the rear UPVC doors. On this occasion no entry was gained inside the property.
Sometime between Friday 8 and Saturday November 9, a high-valued pedal cycle was stolen from a greenhouse within a back garden. The bike was a ‘Scott’ make, with grey 17” frame, 21 speed, cleats on the pedals, and an Areo black canvas bag was beneath the seat.
Sgt Edwards said: “As always we are appealing to anyone who may have information on these crimes to make contact with us.”
