The arrests were made in Hetton, in the Houghton area, on Wednesday as part of a Northumbria Police crime crackdown.

During the raids, drugs and items suspected of being stolen were seized.

Those arrested have been bailed pending further inquiries. Officers later handed out leaflets explaining their presence in the area.
