Aranda Primary burglars gone to the dogs

By johnboy - 7 December 2012 15

ACT Policing apprehended two 17-year-olds for aggravated burglary at Aranda Primary School this morning (Friday, December 7).

About 2.15am, police were called to the location after reports of multiple intruder alarms being activated.

Belconnen patrols conducted an internal search of the building while the dog team searched the perimeter.

Two young people were located inside the building and were observed carrying property and heading towards an exit.

After failing to obey a request from police to stop, a short foot pursuit ensued and one of the teenagers, a girl, was apprehended a short distance from the building.

The second teenager, a young man, continued to run across the oval, but was found with the assistance of one of the police dogs after dropping property on the way.

The young people were placed under arrest and conveyed to Belconnen Police Station before being returned to the custody of their parents.

Investigations are ongoing.

what can you possibly steal from a school that’s worth anything ( and that you can sell afterwards), All the computers are bolted down and all the other valuables are locked away.

Maybe chalk or a couple of pencils, an Atlas perhaps?

“The young people were placed under arrest and conveyed to Belconnen Police Station before being returned to the custody of their parents.”

Why do they bother catching and releasing these sh*tbags back to the parents, when the parents are possibly part of the problem in the first place?

You haven’t been in a school in a while have you? I would be hard pressed to find any chalk in a school these days… But there would be plenty to attract a young thug looking for cheap thrills. Paint to do some vandalism elsewhere for instance. If they were in the office, I would argue that the computers were not bolted down at all.

Even if they did get computers, what’s the resale value of a second hand computer these days, really?
They wouldn’t be able to sell it to cash converters or the like. What did they stand to gain if they’d managed to get two (probably well out of date) laptops each? I mean what are they gonna do, hang around the local shopping center offering people a computers for $300?

Those police dogs really take a bit out of crime. Shame the legal system will go easy on the perpetrators.

Don’t schools have iPads nowadays?

Small, light, very valuable, and they’d be a breeze to sell on.

Wonder if it is the same little t*rds who have been doing B+Es around Aranda over the last week or so? Likley they were looking for cash and small items.

It’s funny reading members of the ‘hive’ doing a cost benefit analysis from the thieves perspective prior to a school break-in, as if that’s what a couple of teenagers stand outside doing before a big ‘job’
