Four men have been arrested as part of a police operation to crack down on rural crime in Northumberland.

Officers carried out a string of dawn raids at properties in Stobhill, Blyth and Bedlington on Tuesday as part of an investigation into drug supply, burglary and theft in the area.

As a result, four men were detained on suspicion of burglary, handling stolen goods, public order and insurance fraud.

A number of suspected stolen items were also seized, including a cable locating system worth almost £2,000.

Neighbourhood sergeant Ian Pattison, of Northumbria Police, said: “Organised crime can devastate communities and often spearheaded by heartless individuals only out to make a profit.

“Yesterday, as part of our ongoing proactive activity, we were able to arrest four suspects who have been assisting officers with their enquiries, while we also seized evidence that will prove invaluable moving forward.
