Gotcha ….. Bell Block Feral Youth Car Thief’s Caught

A trio of Feral thieves who allegedly broke into dozens of cars in Bell Block have been arrested. Bell Block Police say two 17-year-olds and a 16-year-old had been spotted by a member of the public at 2am today, Tuesday 4th February 2014 and were later caught by police. Bell Block Police said they admitted breaking into 20 cars and trying their luck at getting into another 40 which were locked. ”They’re walking down the street trying the doors of every vehicle.”The boys would take anything they could from the cars, including cash, phones and other electronics. ”Anything that is light and shiny.” Bell Block Police said it was a good reminder for people to lock their cars and remove valuables or keep them secure or hidden. The two 17-year-olds would be facing multiple charges of stealing from cars and are to appear in court tomorrow. The 16-year-old would be referred to Youth Aid…. (We say display these Feral’s in stocks on Parklands Avenue for an hour, invite the victims of these Feral Youth’s to attend, and let’s see if these Feral’s will ever re-offend again once the many victim’s have dealt with them.)
