Trainers on alert after man arrested
TRAINERS and others who work in the horse racing industry are being asked to review the security of their homes and businesses.
Police have put them on the alert as they continue a wide-ranging inquiry in North Yorkshire.
The county is home to two of the country’s biggest centres for the racing industry – Middleham and Malton – and detectives believe they have become the target for would-be robbers.
Details of the investigation remain sparse and police say they are unable to give details for operational reasons.
However a spokesman said in a statement issued today: “We have arrested one local man and are actively seeking at least two others.
“We believe we have disrupted the intentions of these people to steal or rob.”
He added: “We ask for people to be vigilant, take sensible precautions and to report any suspicious activity to the local police.”
Police are also asking anyone with information about suspicious activity to contact the North Yorkshire force on 101. Alternatively details can also be passed on anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800-555111.
