Police arrest three after cars stolen, South Australia

Three youths have been arrested after two break-ins and two cars stolen from Unley Park and Black Forest on Tuesday (3 November) night.

Just after 6am on Wednesday 4 November, an Unley Park resident reported he had his house broken into and a silver Jaguar and electronic devices had been stolen from the premises.

About an hour later the victim contacted police advising that an Apple watch left in the vehicle was tracked to a Black Forest address. Southern District patrols attended the location and found the stolen Apple watch.

Three youths were arrested and charged with serious criminal trespass, theft and illegal use. A 15-year-old boy from Ridleyton and two 16-year-old boys from Black Forest and Davoren Park have been refused bail and will appear in the Adelaide Youth Court today (Thursday 5 November).

A search of the Black Forest address also located a handbag stolen from a break-in at a Torrens Park home overnight on Tuesday where a silver Jaguar SUV and other property was stolen.

About 8.30am the same day the victim of the Torrens Park break-in advised police the vehicle tracking locator on his Jaguar SUV was ‘pinging’ at a Christies Beach address.

The SUV was located on Fuller Terrace at Christies Beach.

The silver 2014 Jaguar XF sedan with registration S645CCN, stolen from Unley Park is still outstanding.

Anyone who spots the stolen Jaguar or knows of its whereabouts is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
