Residents see items be stolen

A TEENAGER was charged yesterday with offences related to alleged incidents at Bellbridge in which residents of one home watched as their belongings were being carried out of the door.

Wodonga Detective Sen-Constable Justin Foots said a Wodonga man, 18, was arrested and charged yesterday with aggravated burglary, theft from four cars, theft from a boat and attempted theft in the early hours of December 16.

He was bailed to appear at the Wodonga Magistrates Court on July 1.

The aggravated burglary charge related to a break-in at a home where people drinking on a balcony at 2am saw people below walk out of their house carrying some of their belongings, Sen-Constable Foots said.

He said one other person was arrested and interviewed without charge.

Another person is expected to be interviewed today in relation to the matter.

Sen-Constable Foots called for the public’s help in locating a large, soft orange bag containing boat safety equipment.

The bag was dumped near the Springdale Heights Tavern in Lavington on or soon after December 16.
