Weekly Update

Hi all, please see below our Newton Aycliffe Police Weekly Update;

The teams at Newton Aycliffe have dealt with wide ranging incidents this week including domestic disputes, concerns for safety, missing people and other crime. Here is a snap shot of our week;

December 2021 saw a 17% reduction in Anti-Social Behaviour (YTD).

PCSO’s conducted a joint visit with partners at Livin on Wednesday to address numerous reports of Anti-Social Behaviour at an address in Broomlee Close. The tenant has been issued with a warning against her tenancy.

A local youth has been issued with an Acceptable Behaviour Contract on Saturday after being involved in some recent incidents of Anti-Social Behaviour across the town. This contract has a number of conditions which the youth must abide by and lasts for 6 months.

Officers have been upping patrols around the Town Centre after an increase in Anti-Social Behaviour and groups of youths gathering there has increased over the last couple of weeks. Parents of some of these youths have been spoken with and we are also working with our partners at the Council Anti-Social Behaviour team to problem solve around this.

A number of thefts occurred at Gestamp, Newton Aycliffe during the day on Tuesday 4th January. CCTV has been reviewed and enquiries are ongoing to trace the suspect.

A male was arrested on Thursday 6th for an assault which occurred in the Industrial Estate. The male was transported to Darlington Custody and later cautioned for the offence.

On the evening of Thursday 6th Jan, a vehicle was stopped in the Cobblers Hall area of Newton Aycliffe due to intelligence that had been received in relation to drugs. A male was arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs with the intention to supply, having possession of an offensive weapon and driving whilst unfit through drugs.

A multi-agency meeting took place looking at a new initiative to reduce vulnerability across the town connected to addiction. We are hoping to roll this out soon in conjunction with Humankind.

Two youths were arrested on Friday 7th January in the Western area in relation to recent thefts of motorcycles. One of these males resisted arrest, caused damage to a police vehicle and pepper spray had to be used to control him. Both males were later charged with several offences including theft of a motorcycle and remanded in custody. They will appear in court on Monday 10th January where a further Criminal Behaviour Order will be sought. Criminal Behaviour orders are generally granted for 2 years and can include enforceable conditions around curfews, exclusions around certain areas and associations with other offenders.
