Meekatharra po­lice have charged a 16-year-old Leonora boy with bur­gling two prop­er­ties while armed with a ma­chete and threat­en­ing a woman early last Satur­day morn­ing.

Po­lice will al­lege that the boy ver­bally threat­ened a fe­male oc­cu­pant at home dur­ing one of the bur­glar­ies and dam­aged two ve­hi­cles dur­ing the al­leged ram­page.

He faced Ger­ald­ton Chil­dren’s Court on Mon­day, where he was re­manded in cus­tody.
