17-year-old linked to several burglaries

A 17-year-old from Rangeway has been charged with three counts of aggravated burglary and two counts of stealing after he was caught last week.

During the evening of August 6th and 7th, the offender smashed a window at the Geraldton Golf Club and attempted to gain entry to the premises.

Officers attached to Operation Telepathic conducted investigations in relation to the matter and identified a person of interest who was arrested yesterday.
