Thieves ram cars out of compound


Police have arrested two youths following the theft of three vehicles from a property in Alice Springs.
Around 10:15pm on Tuesday a building on the corner of Leichhardt and Gregory Terrace was unlawfully entered by three people, who located three sets of car keys and used the vehicles to ram their way out of the compound.
Police observed the three vehicles being driven erratically throughout the Alice Springs CBD and surrounding suburbs. The vehicles were located abandoned soon after.
A 15-year-old boy has been charged with one count of unlawful entry and one count of unlawful use of a motor vehicle.
A 13-year-old girl has been charged with one count of unlawful use of a motor vehicle and breach of bail. Bail is yet to be determined.
Investigations continue, say police.


  1. This is the same building the NT Government has vacated as its former departmental offices but (I am informed) continues to pay rent for the empty space.
    Meanwhile, on the opposite side of Gregory Terrace and a short distance up is the public “asset” of the former Visitors Information Centre that has been abandoned, trashed and boarded up.
    It’s all symptomatic of something seriously wrong with a Labor Government that three short years ago was elected overwhelmingly on the promise of being more honest and accountable.
    The whole situation stinks to high hell.

  2. I bet the public would love to follow this story through to the courts to hear what the outcome is: The “they have had a hard life excuse” is copy and pasted into every case now days.
    Tell me what amount of money this has cost in damage, police and courts and what benefit the community gets out of the outcome.
    I bet you will see a lot of cost involved and no deterrent for it to never happen again by these two.

  3. Would also be interesting to know why on the parole board website there is no 2018 annual report.
    An oversight, or didn’t they see the need to let the community know the numbers granted or declined.
