The youths were chased by the oc­cu­pant and an­other mem­ber of the pub­lic. Sgt Mau­rice Parker from Porirua Po­lice says one was found soon af­ter and the other was brought to the po­lice sta­tion by his mother a few hours later. He says it ap­pears the boys were knock­ing on doors be­fore break­ing in, and may have been re­spon­si­ble for sev­eral other bur­glar­ies in the Tawa and Lin­den area. They will ap­pear in the Porirua Youth Court. Mr Parker says res­i­dents should se­cure their homes, and report sus­pi­cious ac­tiv­ity im­me­di­ately on 111.
