A teenager called police to report a man was brandishing a knife in public - but it turned out to be him carrying the blade.
Jack Barrass, 19, has been sent to prison for nine months after being caught by police in possession of the knife on March 24.
The teenager had called police to claim that he had witnessed a man waving a knife above his head on St James' Crescent in Benwell.
When police arrived they spotted a man who matched the description of the person given by the caller.
Officers approached him and carried out a stop and search, at which point the man admitted he had a knife tucked into his trousers.
Bodycam footage of the search has been shared by the force, showing Barrass admitting he has a knife seconds after being approached by an officer.

Do you think we could recreate Bedlington Front Street from years ago by using old pics ?
I think it would be worth doing.
Malcolm , i reckon it would be good for your project. What do you think.
here's two pics , we could add on to these and re-create the street if we could get enough pics from that time
Has anyone got any updates regarding Tescos. It's gone very quiet. They have done exactly what everyone say they do buy up all the shops and then have the monopoly of the high street and then do nothing. Who is fighting for us at the moment or have we been forgotten. The Bedlington front street looks great at the moment with the new fronts been put on the shops but there are no decent shops now . No real reason to shop apart from food at Tescos which is exactly what they wanted.We are making do with a sub standard Morrisons and Tescos .
