Parents should be aware of what their children are up to and
report any suspicious behaviour, after three teens were
caught breaking into cars this week.
Police apprehended the trio in Hargest Cres after they broke
into several cars in the St Kilda area on Thursday night,
Acting Senior Sergeant Ben Butterfield said.
One of the teens would appear in the Dunedin Youth Court next
week, while the other two had been referred to Youth Aid.
Snr Sgt Ben Butterfield said property from three cars had
been returned to the owners, but police were still trying to
return other recovered items.
Anyone whose car was broken into in the Hargest Cres area was
urged to contact Dunedin police.
The arrests served as a reminder for people not to leave
property in their vehicles, but also for parents to know
their children's whereabouts, he said.
Parents should question their children if they returned home
with items that did not belong to them, and could contact
police or anonymous tip-off line Crimestoppers on 0800
