THE bat­tle against youth crime con­tin­ues as po­lice charge seven ju­ve­niles.

Gayn­dah po­lice laid the charges af­ter a string of break and en­ters and acts of van­dal­ism.

Over the course ofApril 1924, there were three break and en­ters, two acts of graf­fiti, an act of wil­ful dam­age and un­law­ful en­try to a ve­hi­cle.

Se­nior Con­sta­ble Wyatt Telford said Gayn­dah po­lice laid the charges on April 26.

“They have been re­manded in cus­tody to ap­pear at the next Gayn­dah Chil­dren’s Court,” Snr Const Telford said.

Snr Const Telford said the of­fend­ers had been prey­ing on easy tar­gets.

“Th­ese re­cent of­fences have been crimes of op­por­tu­nity.

“If they can’t pull a door open, they’re not go­ing in,” he said.

“We ask that peo­ple dou­ble check the se­cu­rity of their cars and houses.

“Don’t leave them un­se­cured.”

The next ses­sion of Gayn­dah Chil­dren's Court is May 23.
