A MAN has appeared in court charged with theft from a vehicle in Sunderland.

Gary Daglish stood before Sunderland Magistrates Court, yesterday, accused of three counts of theft from a vehicle in Houghton.

The 32-year-old from Front Street, Houghton, was bailed to appear before the same court on September 11.

Acting Neighbourhood Inspector Les Goodliff said: “I would like to urge motorists to ensure they always lock their vehicles and make sure they leave nothing valuable on display. “Anyone who has been a victim of crime or wants to report a bruglary or theft should contact your local neighbourhood team on 101 extension 69191.”

The arrest came as part of Operation Echo, part of Northumbria Police’s Operation Soundwave, aimed at tackling thieves and burglars across the force.
