A 25-year-old and a 26-year-old man have been charged with going equipped to steal in Cottingham. 

We had a report that two men were seen acting suspiciously on The Dales off Green Lane just before midnight on Wednesday 4 September. 

Officers attended after information was passed on to us that the men who were on bicycles were shining torches down driveways and into vehicles. 

They were both arrested on Eppleworth Road and later charged. 

Thomas Dale, 25, of Homethorpe in Hull and Jordan Knights-McColgan, 26, of no fixed abode were both charged with having a torch and gloves on them for use in theft. 

Jordan Knights-McColgan has already appeared in court. Thomas Dale will appear in court next month.
