Police Charge Teen With Multiple Offences At Mudgee

A teen will face Court after being charged with numerous offences following a spate of break and enter and steal motor vehicle offences in the Mudgee area.

Since early May 2024, officers from Orana Mid-Western Police District have received multiple reports of houses in the Mudgee area being broken into overnight while residents were asleep, and cars being stolen.

Following an investigation by Mudgee General Duties and Detectives, about 11.15am today (Friday 24 May 2024) police arrested a 14-year-old boy near Lochiel Lane, Mudgee.

During a search of the boy, officers allegedly located a key to a stolen Toyota Hilux utility which was recovered nearby and a folding knife.

The boy was taken to Mudgee Police Station where he was charged with seven offences – enter building/land with intent (two counts), enter inclosed lands (two counts), break, enter and steal, take and drive conveyance and custody of a knife in a public place.

The boy was refused bail to appear at a Childrens Court tomorrow (Saturday 25 May 2024).
