12yr-old charged for stealing vehicle

Last week a commuter bus used to transport people with disabilities was stolen from Lotteries House in Sanford Street.

As a result of information from a member of the public the vehicle was located the following morning bogged in bushland in Spalding.

Subsequent inquiries resulted in the arrest of a 12-year-old male juvenile and a second person of interest is still to be interviewed.

The 12 year old offender was already on bail for a similar offence.

The matter will be reported to the Child Protection and Family Services.

Charges include:

1 x Stealing of motor vehicle 1 x Damage 1 x No authority to drive 1 x Stealing
