Three brothers have been charged following a series of property offences in Victoria and New South Wales.
Around 8am yesterday Narrabri Police observed two males jump the rear fence into private premises on Boheena Street Narrabri. Officers arrested the pair following a short foot pursuit through a number of properties.
The men, aged 40 and 22 years, were taken to Narrabri Police Station.
A short time a third man, aged 19 years, was arrested near the intersection of Cooma Road and Ugoa Streets.
Enquiries revealed the trio were wanted for a string of offences in Tumut as well as a stolen toolbox in Gilgandra and theft of a motor vehicle from a local business on Tuesday night.
The men, all from Tumut, have been charged with offences including larceny, break and enter and vehicle theft.
Superintendent Jenny Hayes said “the arrests were a great example of country Policing and has likely stemmed what would have been the continuation of these offences in Barwon LAC and onto Queensland”.
“Yesterdays arrests come on the back of a number of other good arrests for the Narrabri in recent days and continue the strategies targeted at property offenders and disrupting the cycle of stolen property and drugs”.
All men were bail refused at Moree. Investigators from Tumut and Melbourne are continuing their investigations and expect further charges to be laid.
