Four kids facing 88 charges after month-long crime spree
FOUR children have been charged with more than 80 offences after a month-long crime spree stretching from Toowoomba to Chinchilla.
The juveniles, aged 12 to 14, were arrested in Chinchilla yesterday wanted over a string of alleged crimes including the break and enter of a service station, stealing cars and other stealing offences.
Police will strongly object to any bail application when they appear in the Dalby Children's Court today.
The four juveniles were known to police before the crime spree across the Western Downs and Toowoomba and had evaded arrest for at least a week, police will claim.
The offenders were also linked to offences in the St George area in the past month, police said.
Chinchilla police located two of the wanted juveniles in the town yesterday and arrested them about 9.50am.
The other two of the group later handed themselves in to police.
They were transported from Chinchilla to Dalby yesterday afternoon.
The four are facing a combined 88 charges including unlawful use of a motor vehicle, unlicensed driving, stealing, break and enter and evade offences.
The four offenders have previously been sentenced to youth detention for other unrelated offences, police said.
