POLICE in east Durham are investigating a number of recent incidents in which ball bearings have been fired at windows.

Detective Sergeant Steve Thubron said said there had been three reports of windows being damaged in Peterlee on Sunday, January 5.

They were at a house in Acre Rigg Road, a house in Basingstoke Road and at the Central Club in the town.

The following day houses in Glenholme Terrace, Blackhall and Lowhills Road, Peterlee were targeted.

DS Thubron said: “Some sort of catapult is thought to have been used and it’s suspected the offenders will have been in a vehicle.”

Anyone with information should contact DS Thubron on 101.

I can't accept the proposition that the Police in Peterlee actually want information. Surely, given its history as the most questionable part of the wider constabulary, the Police station in question will just adopt its usual approach of beating a confession out of someone or there will be another 'mysterious' death in custody.
