Three teenagers will face the ACT Children’s Court on Monday, charged in relation to a burglary in Fyshwick late Wednesday night (6 November 2019).

About 11.15pm last night police responded to a report that a door had been smashed at an Iron Knob Street business, and three offenders had stolen numerous items from the store.

A short time later, officers stopped three teenagers walking nearby. They were found to be in possession of several items believed to have been stolen in the break-in, and a subsequent search of the area found additional items.

ACT Policing will allege that all three were involved in the burglary.

Investigations are continuing to determine whether the teenagers were involved in another attempted burglary in Fyshwick overnight.

Anyone with information that may assist police is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Please quote reference 6458314. Information can be provided anonymously.
