Four people have been arrested in relation to two separate property offences in Katherine.
Police arrested three male youths on Thursday following the alleged unlawful entry of a property along Sandalwood Crescent.
A 15-year-old and 17-year-old were charged and will appear before court at a later date, while a 12-year-old boy will be dealt with under the provisions of the Youth Justice Act 2005.
Police arrested a man in a second incident on the same day, after he allegedly entered and stole from a residence on Riverbank Drive.
The 22-year-old has been charged with entering a building with intent, stealing, and trespassing on enclosed premises.
Another person was seen fleeing the location and investigations are continuing into the identity of that individual.
Commander Kylie Anderson says breaking into another person’s home is a reprehensible act.
“The Katherine community and local police are extremely frustrated over this disrespectful behaviour.
“Police will continue to work hard to hold property offenders to account for their actions.”
Police are urging anyone who witnesses crime or anti-social behaviour to contact 131 444 or, in an emergency, Triple 000.
