Police on the trail of teenage burglars

Tuesday, 4th May, 2010

Police have been
given a description of
two burglars who broke
into a house in Rowe
Street on Sunday morning.
The burglary was one
of four committed over
the weekend, police said
yesterday.
Neighbouring houses
at the northern end of
Beryl Street and two in
Railwaytown were broken
into, they said.
In Rowe Street, the
owner of the house went
out about 11am, leaving
his back door unlocked,
and returned home 15
minutes later to find two
teenage boys inside.
Police said they fled
out the back door with a
digital camera they had
stolen and that the owner
gave chase but lost sight
of them.
He told police that one
of the thieves was about
14 to 15 years old with
fair skin and blonde, curly
hair while the other was
Aboriginal with short dark
hair and about 15 or 16
years old.
Also on Sunday a home
in Wills Street was broken
into while the owner was
attending church, police
said.
The house was entered
through the front door, a
bedroom ransacked and all
the other rooms showed
signs of disturbance, they
said.
The break-in was
committed between
8.30am and 11am and it
was not yet known what, if
anything, had been stolen,
police said.
In Beryl Street on
Sunday thieves smashed
a back window to break
into a house and ransack
the place while the owners
were away.
This happened some
time between 1.30pm and
2pm.
Police said it was yet to
be determined if anything
was missing but that about
$2,000 worth of property
had been stolen from the
house next door earlier in
the day or overnight.
Thieves broke in through
the back window sometime
after 10pm Saturday
and, after ransacking the
house, escaped with cash,
alcoholic drinks, a digital
camera and a luggage
bag.
The theft was discovered
about 11am on Sunday.
