Police raids in Guisborough lead to arrest of man on suspicion of possession of firearm
A MAN has been arrested on suspicion of possession of a firearm following a series of early morning raids in Guisborough.
The raids came after a gang of armed men attacked a house.
Police were called to an address in Warwick Road at around 8pm after reports that two car-loads of men had smashed up the house before fleeing.
Officers believe the suspects drove away in a white van and dark-coloured 4x4 vehicle.
A Cleveland Police spokeswoman said: “We have now searched four addresses on Poplar Place, Canvey Walk, Alison Street in Guisborough and Somerset Road in Eston in connection with an incident on Warwick Road on Monday.
“A 23-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary and possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence. He has been taken into custody.
“Three other men are being sought in connection with the incident and police would urge these men to come forward and speak to police.”
Anyone with further information is asked to contact Cleveland Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
