TWO people have been arrested in connection with three burglaries in North Yorkshire.

The first took place in the early hours of July 28 on Westbourne Ave in Harrogate.

The offenders entered the victim’s home before taking their car keys, a handbag and stealing a black Audi Q7 and a black Toyota Hilux from the driveway outside. The Audi has since been located.

In the second burglary, in the early hours of August 3, offenders took the car keys from a home on Park Avenue in Knaresborough before stealing a Fiat Doblo van parked outside.

The van has since been recovered.

Then overnight on August 3, the third burglary occurred on Danum Road in York. In this incident, the victims came downstairs in the morning to find their home had been broken into and items including a handbag, wallet, purses and bank cards had been stolen.

A 17 year-old boy was arrested and interviewed in connection with all three offences.

He has been remanded in custody and is due to appear at court in relation to a separate matter.

A 19 year-old man was also arrested yesterday evening and interviewed in connection with the Knaresborough burglary and has been released on conditional bail.
