TWO men were found hiding in gardens and arrested after officers were called out to a report of a burglary in York this morning.

North Yorkshire Police received a report of a burglary on St Helen’s Road, in Dringhouses, at around 4.30am.

A National Police Air Service (NPAS) helicopter was scrambled to Dringhouses to help with the search.

Both were arrested.

A spokeswoman for North Yorkshire Police said: "Officers attended the scene and following searches and assistance from NPAS, a 44-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of going equipped for burglary and a 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicious of attempted burglary with intent to steal.

"Both remain in police custody."

@PC541NYP said: "Officers very quickly on scene and located two people hiding in gardens behind the properties.

"They have both been detained and arrested.
