Man charged with multiple offences

POLICE have arrested an 18-year-old Yarrabah man following an investigation into alleged burglaries in Yungaburra.


Police will allege that on 8 January, the man travelled with others to Yungaburra in a car that had been stolen from Redlynch and commenced a crime spree, breaking into multiple homes and vehicles, stealing cars and valuables. 

Officers from Cairns located the man in Bungalow last Wednesday, arresting and charging him with three counts of burglary, four counts each of entering premises and committing an indictable offence and unlawful use of a motor vehicle, three counts of entering premises with intent to commit an indictable offence and one count of unlicenced driving. 

The 18-year-old Yarrabah man’s bail was opposed, and he was scheduled to appear in the Cairns Magistrates Court last Thursday.
