A 14-YEAR-OLD Bentleigh youth was arrested in a stolen car with three alleged co-offenders on Tuesday 6 June and charged over burglaries the day before.
These included a raid on a house in Joyce St, Carrum, where a garage door was forced open and a motorbike stolen. The offenders were seen driving off in a Toyota Prado stolen from Park Rd, Mt Martha, the same day.
Police will allege the offenders used a hammer to gain entry to the Coles Express in Boundary Rd, Mordialloc, overnight Friday 9 June. They were seen driving the stolen Toyota at Baxter, 3.15am. The same offenders allegedly used a hammer to try to enter a Wells Rd, Chelsea Heights, milk bar and then stole items from a car in Hibberd St, Highett.
The Toyota was again used as a getaway vehicle.
