Information Update – 15th June 2009

Arsons – Trimdon Colliery.
After a spate of arsons in April/May 2009 in the Colliery 5 arrests have been made as a result of public information. Some enquiries are on going in relation to these incidents and I am happy to say that no further incident shave occurred since the arrests have been made. Anyone who has any information in relation to any of these incidents can contact me on the usual number or email address.

Operation Adonis.
This operation was set up in April 2009 in order to tackle the increase in calls in relation to off road motorcycles, mini mottos and quad bike being used in an anti social manner in the Trimdons. So far the calls have reduced and we have had a number of successes in relation to warnings being issued and some bikes seized. However incidents in and around the Elwick View area of Trimdon Village are continuing, a combination of covert and high visibility patrols will continue in this area, anyone with information in relation to offending riders please contact me in confidence.
