Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE spate of crime in Monto has con­tin­ued, with more busi­nesses tar­geted on Sun­day.

Be­tween midnight and 5am, one busi­ness was bro­ken into, with dam­age done and cash stolen.

A ve­hi­cle was dam­aged at an­other busi­ness.

Monto po­lice have charged a 15-year-old Bund­aberg boy with break and en­ter and wil­ful dam­age.

Po­lice al­leged the boy had been at a party at the show grounds and was drunk.

Hewas re­leased on bail to his par­ents.

Monto Po­lice Sergeant Werner Crous said the boy would not say who was with him, but po­lice be­lieved he could not have been alone in the crime.

“With that much dam­age he must have been work­ing in a team. I urge any­one with any in­for­ma­tion on 15 to 18-year-olds en­ter­ing the town cen­tre or ac­cess roads to please con­tact Monto Po­lice,” Sgt Crous said.

“Po­lice see no link be­tween this and other re­cent break and en­ters. This was on im­pulse while the oth­ers were planned.

“I can’t be­lieve the cava­lier at­ti­tude to al­co­hol in so­ci­ety, par­tic­u­larly re­gard­ing mi­nors.

“I am amazed there were no noise com­plaints about this party.”

Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing this crime can con­tact Monto Po­lice on 4166 1211 or af­ter hours the Bund­aberg Po­lice Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Cen­tre on 4153 9111.
