TEEN CHARGED: Brazen thieves’ smash way into Chinchilla servo
While the Chinchilla community held their breath waiting for news on a toddler who went missing 60km south of town, three brazen thieves decided it was the perfect time to allegedly smash their way into a local business.
A Chinchilla police spokesman said three thieves were allegedly involved in the attempted burglary of a Shell Service Station on Heeney Street at 11pm on Monday, March 9.
The spokesman said one 15-year-old-boy from Chinchilla has been charged in relation to the crime.
The spokesman said after smashing the front window, one offender entered the business and began rummaging around, while the other remaining offenders stayed outside as lookouts.
"They triggered the alarm and then they all took off… nothing was stolen."
With two outstanding suspects, the spokesman urged anyone with information or CCTV footage, to contact the local station on 46729666, or Policelink on 131 444, and quote the following number: QP2100453045.
