Carload of kids face theft charges

TWO 15-year-old boys have been charged over break-ins at two Rockhampton hardware stores this month.

Police will allege they were part of a group of six, one as young as 13, who also stole a vehicle from Rockhampton and drove it to Yeppoon on Monday night.

The teenagers were arrested and taken to the Rockhampton watchhouse.

Rockhampton's Bunnings was broken into last Sunday and Mitre 10 was targeted seven times in nine nights. Both had glue stolen.

One 15-year-old was charged with two counts of entering premises and committing an indictable offence and unlawful use of a motor vehicle.

He was remanded in custody until March 27.

Another 15-year-old was charged with break and enter, possessing dangerous drugs and unlawful use of a motor vehicle.

Two boys, aged 13 and 15, were charged with one count of unlawful use of a motor vehicle, and two girls, 14 and 15, were charged with two counts each of the same offence.

They are all due to appear separately in the Rockhampton Children's Court on April 3.
