Police dogs catch teen burglars

Share Canberra's trusted news:

POLICE dogs managed to help catch two 17-year-olds allegedly robbing Aranda Primary School early this morning.

About 2.15am, police were called to the location after reports of multiple intruder alarms sounding off.

Belconnen patrols conducted an internal search of the building while the dog team searched the perimeter.

Two young people were located inside the building and were observed carrying property and heading towards an exit.

Police chased the teenagers after they failed to stop and the first offender, a girl, was arrested a short distance from the building.

The second teenager, a young man, continued to run across the oval, but was found with the assistance of one of the police dogs after dropping property on the way.

The young people were placed under arrest and conveyed to Belconnen Police Station before being returned to the custody of their parents.

Investigations are ongoing.
