A 29-year-old who was arrested in connection with a string of burglaries in Bridlington has been released by Humberside Police because there was not enough evidence for charges to be brought against him.

It comes after 10 garages were broken into on Havelock Place between Thursday 27 and Friday 28 November - some had property stolen from within.

A spokesperson for Humberside Police said: “Cutting equipment thought to be used in the burglaries has been recovered and is awaiting forensic examination.”

The garages are let to local residents who Police are appealing to get in touch with them if they haven’t already spoken to them.

DC Simon Marshall of Bridlington Police Station added: “Some of the tenants may have been victims without knowing about it, we have tried to contact all the tenants but so far have only managed to make contact with a few.

“It is important that anyone who rents a garage down Havelock Street checks on their property and contacts the police if anything has been damaged or stolen.

“One of the garages had a number of golfing items stolen and power tools.

“The details of these stolen items are: a black golf bag with green zips, Gallaway [sic] clubs, an Odyssey putter, an black electric golf cart, a ‘clinker’ tile cutter.”

The police spokesperson also said: “Anyone who may be offered these items is reminded that handling stolen good is an offence and they are asked to report this to the police.”

Humberside Police are also appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the burglaries to contact the police on the non-emergency number 101 quoting log 9 28/11/2014.
