Many of you will have seen the shocking photos of the shop break-ins from Guisborough over the last two nights.
These are disgusting crimes against hard-working independent businesses, including Oh, Abigail and The Barber Co., as well the attempted break in to the The Guisborough Bookshop & Occasions Cards. It's devastating for hard-working people.
I spoke to Inspector Neil DeLuce from Cleveland Police this morning. Both CID and regular police are on the case identifying the offender through clothing and other intelligence means. They will also be looking at other CCTV in the area to see if that provides other opportunities.
Inspector De Luce has ensured that the teams working overnight are aware of these crimes, to get resources to the town centre. Hopefully there will be an arrest quickly.
In the meantime, if you have any knowledge about these crimes, please report it using the 101 service.
