Five teens charged with over 40 offences


A group of five teens accused of a crime spree in Capricornia have been charged.

Police say the five boys broke into numerous properties from Westwood to Yeppoon using stolen 4WD vehicles including a Dodge Ram, Landcruisers and a BT50.

The group racked up more than 40 charges between them, consisting mainly of theft, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and wilful damage.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, officers arrested the boys aged 14-17.

They will all now appear in the Rockhampton Children’s Court this week.
