More arrests following violent crime spree

POLICE have made another two arrests as they track down the offenders responsible for a violent crime spree in the South Burnett and Fraser Coast regions.

A 16-year-old male appeared in the Murgon Children's Court on June 13 charged with two counts of car theft, a break and enter at a Tiaro hotel, attempted robbery in Cherbourg and wilful damage of a police car.

The alleged offender was refused bail and will re-appear in the Murgon Children's Court on June 20.

A 14-year-old male also fronted the Children's Court charged with break and enter, two counts of unlawful use of a motor vehicle and stealing petrol.

Murgon Senior Sergeant Lance Guteridge said the young man would reappear in court on June 20.

"He has been granted bail with conditions, including a curfew,” he said.

This brings the total number of arrests to five.
