Appeal after burglaries in Morpeth
Dated: 07 Jun 2012
Police are appealing for witnesses after a series of burglaries in Northumberland.
The first happened between 11.50pm on Thursday, May 31, and 12.30am on Friday, June 1, when diesel was stolen from two HGVs at an address in Longhirst in Morpeth. It would appear the diesel was syphoned out of the tanks and the thieves may have used a vehicle.
The second burglary happened on Monday afternoon between 3pm and 4pm when the army cadets hut at Red Row Community Centre was broken into. A small amount of cash was stolen and two doors were damaged.
Between 4pm and 8pm on Monday, June 4, a yellow 250 Suzuki motorbike was stolen from Firtrees Nursery in Stobswood, Widdrington. The bike was in a poly tunnel green house which thieves cut a hole in to steal.
Overnight on Monday, June 4, and 9am on Tuesday, June 5, a red Muddy Fox Wrecker bike was stolen after a shed was broken into in West View in Morpeth.
Officers are keen to hear from anyone who has any information about the burglaries or saw anything out of the ordinary.
The burglaries are not believed to be linked.
Any witnesses should contact Northumbria Police 101 ext 69191 or alternatively Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
