Two boys charged over break-ins

TWO boys, aged 12 and 13, have been charged with breaking into a string of Tamworth businesses.

The youths were arrested yesterday as part of an investigation and charged with three counts of aggravated break-and-enter and commit serious indictable offence in company, as well as one count of break-and-enter with intent in company. Police will allege the charges stem from break-ins last Friday and Monday night in the Centrepoint shopping centre, as well as a Peel St restaurant and finance company. Centrepoint was allegedly hit twice by the boys.

They have been granted conditional bail to front Tamworth Children's Court later this month.
