Dated: 26 Sep 2012
Police in Newburn are reassuring business owners and residents extra police will be in the area to help them protect their property.
Earlier today, police were made aware of a burglary at KB cycles which had happened overnight in High Street. A man and a woman have been arrested on suspicion of burglary and are currently in police custody.
Acting Chief Superintedent Dave Byrne, of Newcastle Area Command, said: "The safety of business owners and residents is paramount and it is despicable if people are thinking of taking advantage of the bad weather and using it as an opportunity to break-in to properties.
"We have increased patrols in Newburn, however, as always, it is important that people remember to take their own steps to ensure the security of their premises and belongings and make sure they securely lock doors and windows and use alarms where they have them."
