Police are appealing for information after a car was stolen from Newton Aycliffe and later found burnt out.
As revealed in his blog on Aycliffe Today, Neighbourhood Police Team Inspector Mark Edwards says suspects entered a house on Welbury Grove by climbing through a ground floor window, which had been forced open, some time between 11.45pm on Sunday 12th July and 5am the next morning.
Keys for a black Hyundai vehicle were taken and the car itself was taken by the culprits. It was later found having been set alight in the Tindale Green area.
Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
