5 boys face 63 charges after overnight crime spree

FIVE juveniles have been charged with 63 offences between them after a spate of break-ins and thefts throughout Warwick.

The boys, aged 12-16 years, took to the streets, in the late hours of Wednesday night and broke into cars and units, stealing whatever they could get their hands on.

Police found the five boys hiding out in a Dragon St unit block on Thursday where it is believed they spent the night.

The 63 charges relate to break-ins, wilful damage and drug offences, among others.

One 16-year-old fronted Warwick Magistrates Court yesterday and was remanded in custody to re-appear on Monday. The other four were released on bail.

A Warwick Police spokesman reminded people to be vigilant when securing their belongings and to always lock their vehicles.

"People need to lock their cars, even when parked in garages and carports," he said.

The spokesman also urged anyone in Dragon St who was missing property to phone Warwick Police on 4660 4444 or drop into the station.

"We have some property for which we haven't identified the owners," he said.
