Two teens arrested
Two juveniles have been arrested over a recent series of burglaries and off-road vehicle thefts in Tom Price.
Five houses and sheds were allegedly broken into on Monday, May 2, and a quad bike and three trail bikes were reported stolen from the properties.
Police have arrested two teenage males on a combined 13 charges over the alleged offences and are working to bring in at least two more people who they believe were involved.
Two of the four missing vehicles have so far been recovered.
Tom Price police acting officer-in-charge Sergeant Paul Burkinshaw said five burglaries in one night was a particularly big crime spike for the town. “You’ve got to really make it difficult for people to get that kind of property,” he said.
