VANDALS and thieves have been on
a splurge over Christmas and at least
eight homeowners have returned
from holidays to find their homes
One woman, who declined to be named,
told the Tennant Times she was devastated
to come back from holidays to find her home
had been left in a huge mess (pictured) after
thieves broke in.
Despite her gates being locked, and the
house properly secured, a gang of children
got in and rifled through all her belongings.
“It was horrible, so upsetting and violating,”
“I’m under incredible pressure at work so
taking a break helps me keep my sanity.
“Now I’m sorry I left, it was such a big mess
and it took me weeks to clean.”
The woman’s drawers and cupboards were
all turned out with contents scattered all over
Thousands of dollars worth of property,
including a motorcycle, was stolen.
“The police told me to get rid of all items
in my bathroom, saying that I didn’t want to
know what they had done in there,” she said.
“I’m so disgusted.”
Five children were believed to be involved
in the break-in although so far only two have
In another case, nine youths and an 18-year-
old have been charged with over 200 offences
following an incident in the industrial area

Detective Sergeant Kieron Weller said 10
young people caused substantial damage to
residences in Maloney, Standley and Brown
streets during a crime spree on 3 January.
“The offenders broke into four neighbour-

shed where they attempted to start a tractor,
forklift and three vehicles, damaging each of
them,” he said.
“They then allegedly broke into the shed
where they performed numerous burn-outs
on two motor scooters.”
Sergeant Weller said the offenders were
captured on CCTV cameras.
“Upon arrival of Police, the offenders fled
in different directions,” he said.
“Two were immediately apprehended fol-
lowed by another five shortly afterwards.
“They were charged with multiple offences
including aggravated unlawful entry, stealing,
damage to property, attempted unlawful use
of motor vehicles and trespass.”
One of the offenders, a 15 year old male
was also charged with an unlawful entry in
Amaroo in December where Police allege he
stole a vehicle, $6,000 cash and over $12,000
Sergeant Weller said in a separate incident,
an 18-year-old who allegedly stole a Toyota
Hilux from Leichhardt Street rolled it on the
way to Epenarra.
A teenager who was a passenger in the ve-
hicle has been arrested and charged and Police
are expecting to arrest the alleged driver soon.
Licensed premises were also targeted over
the Christmas break with hundreds of dollars
worth of alcohol stolen from the Tennant
Creek Hotel, Goldfields, Memo Club and the
The alleged offenders are currently before
the courts with most of them remanded in
custody in Alice Springs.
