THREE ‘prolific’ Newton Aycliffe teenagers will appear in court today (March 7), charged with numerous offences ranging from motoring offences to breaching their criminal behaviour orders.

The three youngsters, who have become known for terrorising the town and causing nuisance to the neighbourhood policing team, will appear at Newton Aycliffe Magistrates’ Court this morning.

The charges, including Attempt Theft of Motor vehicle, Public Order Offences and a number of breaches of Criminal Behaviour Order, all relate to incidents happening at the end of last week and in the early hours of Saturday (March 5) morning.

At that time, all three teens, who can’t be named due to legal reasons, were arrested, and are currently in police custody until their court appearances later today.

This incident follows on from another court appearance last Thursday (March 4), which saw two of the youths appear before Newton Aycliffe Magistrates Court, having been remanded by the police.

On that occasion, the court bailed them until a later date in March, despite having charges of Public Order Offences, Burglary, driving offences and several breaches of Criminal Behaviour Order.

Sgt Andy Boyd, from Newton Aycliffe Neighbourhood Policing Team, is hoping for more help from the court during today’s hearing.

He said: “Within hours of being released, these same two youths, along with a third male were committing further offences showing complete contempt for conditions imposed upon them.

“I would really like to thank the community in supporting us in providing good quality footage that has enabled us to charge these youths. 

“This really proves that when we have the evidence we need, we can, and we will, take swift action.  I’d like everyone to know that we are doing all we can to reduce the offending of these individuals who are causing havoc in our community.

“I want these individuals to know that they will be arrested and remanded every time we have the evidence to show that they are committing further offences.”
