Two men have been arrested on suspicion of burglary offences following an incident in Cleethorpes’ Bradford Avenue.
Officers were called at around 12.40am yesterday (Wednesday, July 8) when a neighbour spotted torches being shone in a nearby garden.
One male was immediately detained and the other was caught a short time later, after fleeing into neighbouring gardens.
A 20-year-old man and a 19-year-old man, both from Grimsby, have been arrested on suspicion of burglary other than dwelling and burglary other than dwelling with intent to steal.
Both have since been released on bail, to a date later this month, pending further enquiries.
The arrests follow the launch of the Humberside Police Summer Burglary Campaign on Wednesday, July 1, which urges members of the public to ensure they do not provide tempting targets for thieves.
Residents are being asked to assist the force by keeping their properties secure, register property onto www.immobilise.com so it can be identified and returned if lost or stolen and by calling Humberside Police with information about criminality.
The public should call the police if they see people acting suspiciously in their community, if there is a burglary in progress or if they have details about those involved in criminality.
This can be done this using 999 in an emergency, 101 in a non-emergency or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
