RESIDENTS in Harrogate are being asked to check their properties after a man was arrested.

Police stopped the 21-year-old in the early hours of Tuesday, February 7 after he was seen acting suspiciously around St George’s Road, West End Avenue, Leeds Road and Otley Road.

“If you do suspect that something may have been stolen I urge you to contact Harrogate CID as soon as possible.”

Anyone with information should call Harrogate Police Station on 101, press option two and ask for DC Allison. Alternatively, call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
