    Two men are caught and facing face court over an alleged burglary at a convenience store in Bensham, Gateshead.

    According to local reports, George Henderson, 47, of Stretford Court in Gateshead, and David Elliott, 43, of no fixed abode, have been charged over an alleged burglary which took place overnight on Jan 11. Henderson faces two charges of burglary, with Elliott facing one. Both appeared at South Tyneside Magistrates’ Court on Jan 15.

    They were charged within 48 hours of the reported incident, which took place in Coatsworth Road. It is reported that alleged burglars entered the property through an upstairs window, while they then stole £6,000 from the tills and caused extensive damage.

    After obtaining CCTV footage, Gateshead neighbourhood police officers identified two suspects and arrested them.

    Sgt Scott Youngman, of Northumbria Police, said: “This was fantastic work from our officers who quickly located CCTV footage and identified two suspects before getting them into custody.

    “We know just how devastating burglaries can be to businesses – not just in a financial sense – which is why we will always vigorously pursue those responsible of such offences and bring them to justice.”

    The officer added a plea to the public to work with the police and “take a few extra moments” to ensure doors and windows were locked and valuables secured in order to deter crime.
