Humberside Police have arrested and charged two men in connection with a recent spate of burglaries in Bridlington

David Scott, 30, of Neptune Drive, was charged with dwelling burglarly and was remanded into custody following a burglarly at Canton Villas on 12 February.

A further arrest was made recently in connection with a dwelling burglary on Cleaton Way on 15 September 2014.

David Peter Lofty, 21, of Marshall Avenue in Bridlington was subsequently charged with burglary and was remanded into custody.

Detective Inspector Paul Kirby said, “Although it is encouraging that these two individuals are now awaiting court appearances, I would ask residents to remain vigilant and to report anyone or any vehicle acting suspiciously. If anyone has reason to believe there is a burglary in progress they should always call 999, it gives us the best opportunity of catching those responsible.

“If residents suspect someone in the neighbourhood of carrying out crime or handling stolen goods we would be more than happy to speak in confidence to them. They should call 101 and ask to speak to the priority crime team in Bridlington.

“Alternatively crimes can be reported anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, you won’t be asked your name and you could receive a cash reward.”

A spokesperson for the force added: “Handling stolen goods is a crime. Knowingly buying stolen goods is an offence. If you know anyone who is buying or selling stolen goods, call Humberside Police on 101. Alternatively call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, you won’t be asked your name and you could receive a cash reward.”
