Burglars strike rural home

POLICE officers are appealing for information after a burglary in rural Northumberland.

Between 8am and 6pm on Monday, January 17, thieves broke into a house in the Middleton area, which is in the Morpeth sector.

They stole cash, a gold Toshiba laptop computer and a 32-inch flat screen TV.

Morpeth Neighbourhood Inspector Alison Best said: “We believe that the offenders may have had access to a vehicle to transport the television due to the remote location where this offence took place.”
