Three teens allegedly steal three cars, two motorbikes

A Roma juvenile, who has previously fronted court for stealing a car, is currently in a Brisbane Youth Correctional Facility awaiting to stand trial for allegedly stealing three cars and two motorbikes.

The 15-year-old boy, along with two other boys aged 13 and 14 have been charged with stealing two Toyota Hiluxs, one Landrover and two motorbikes between March 8 and 9.

Roma police allege between 2am and 2.30am on Tuesday, March 9, the three boys stole two vehicles from a Foott Street residence and drove them before abandoning the vehicles in nearby street.

One vehicle was damaged but will not be written off, police say.

Between 7pm on March 8, and 3.45am on March 9, the three boys allegedly entered a yard on Conroy Street and wheeled two motorbikes out of the garage, abandoning them in a nearby street.

Police also allege the trio stole a Toyota Hilux parked on a driveway on Cottell Street between the same hours.

The vehicle was unlocked and keys were inside the car.

Police located the car the next day and it was not damaged.

The 15-year-old fronted the Roma Children‘s Court on March 10, and his bail was denied.

He is currently being held in a Brisbane Youth Correctional Centre and will front court via video link on Monday, March 15.

The 13 and 14-year-olds also fronted court on March 10, and were released on bail until their next court sitting on March 15.

The Western Star understands the 15-year-old previously fronted the Roma Children‘s Court and pleaded guilty to stealing a car last year.

Roma Police are reminding residents to lock their cars and homes, even if they are home.

Officers are telling locals to please refrain from keeping your cars unlocked and keys nearby.
