Four youths, aged 16-18 years, have been arrested over an alleged attempt to break into a business in Timber Creek earlier this week.
Police received reports a stolen vehicle had been used to attempt to gain access to the property about 12.15am yesterday.
Police claim the same people later returned to the property with weapons and started harassing staff and guests before leaving.
Police conducted a search of surrounding bushland and recovered the stolen vehicle, and shortly after arrested two male youths, both aged 16, and two male adults, both aged 18.
The two adults will face Timber Creek Local Court on December 9.
They have been charged with:
- aggravated unlawful use of motor vehicle
- attempt unlawful entry
- damage to property
- armed with offensive weapon at night
- breach of bail
The two youths will be subject to the provisions of the Youth Justice Act 2005.
Acting Superintendent Tanya Woodcock said, "Deliberate theft and damage of property is unacceptable and hits hard when it affects workers and businesses in small townships.
"Police would like to thank the community members for their assistance and support in the matter."
