Wee Waa teens arrested after foot pursuit through Narrabri homes 

Two men have been arrested and charged with a number of offences after a 20 minute foot pursuit through the back streets of Narrabri following an early morning robbery at a clothing store.

Six general duties officers from Narrabri and Highway Patrol officers from Barwon Local Area Command were involved in the pursuit of the 16-year-old and 18-year-old males, who were subdued with capsicum spray before being arrested.

It is alleged the teenagers stole a Holden Commodore during an aggravated break and enter at a residence in Cowper St, Wee Waa last night.

The vehicle was then driven to Narrabri, where clothing store Authentic Trademarks in Maitland St was broken into just before 6am on morning.

Police allege a front window was smashed at the front of the store and a large amount of clothing was stolen.

Police located the stolen vehicle at the back of the Narrabri BP service station on Cooma Rd just after 8am and pursued the suspects through houses and backyards on Blanche Peadon Dr.

Police report the pursuit ended at 8.20am and both suspects were taken into custody.

Bail was refused and both will face Moree Local Court later today charged with aggravated break and enter, stealing a motor vehicle, goods in custody and breach of bail.
