Dysart teen charged over burglary of home
A TEENAGER from Dysart will face Gladstone Children’s Court over an alleged burglary earlier this month at New Auckland.
The alleged incident is one of a number of recent burglaries and thefts police have reported in the region over the past six weeks.
“Between the evening of December 4 and the morning of December 5, a burglary was reported from an address at Springbrook Terrace, New Auckland,” police said in a statement.
“It was reported that offender/s gained entry through a window by removing the fly screen.
“Once inside, the offender/s stole a wallet, watch, mobile phone and an Xbox One Console.”
Ten days later, following investigations by police, the teenager was arrested in his home town.
“On December 15, Dysart Police executed a search warrant at an address in Bellarine Court, Dysart in relation to this matter,” police said.
“As a result, a 17-year-old Dysart boy was charged with burglary and possession of a drug utensil.
“The boy will appear in the Gladstones Children’s Court at a later date.”
