Teens found drinking booze after Caversham break-in

Three teenagers have been arrested after they broke into a Caversham home and were found drinking alcohol.

Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen, of Dunedin said a member of the public called police to alert them to five young males gathered at a house in

Eastbourne St. 

When police arrived they found the five teenagers drinking alcohol inside the house, Snr Sgt Dinnissen said.

Police arrested two 15-year-olds and a 17-year-old on burglary charges.

The home was known to some members of the group but they did not have permission to be there, he said.

The older male would appear in the Dunedin District Court later this month, while the younger ones were referred to Youth Aid.

About 45 minutes earlier, police were called to five young males gathered around a parked car in Melbourne St.

Police found the ignition barrel from the car on the road but could not find the group.

It was not known whether the two incidents were related.
