A 32-year-old man is being questioned after police officers seized an off-road motorcycle and found two knives.
Police officers seized the motorcycle in the Owton Manor area of Hartlepool yesterday.
Today, a 32-year-old man is attending a voluntary interview to be questioned on suspicion of being in possession of a bladed article as well as a number of driving offences.
The vehicle was seized and two knives were found by officers.
A spokesman for Hartlepool Neighbourhood Police Team said: "The man who was accompanying the vehicle was astride it and trying to get it started.
"The vehicle was an off-road scrambler and was uninsured.
"Upon searching the man involved police recovered a large kitchen knife and a lock knife.
"Again, another potentially dangerous and no doubt nuisance vehicle to be removed from our public highways."
