A pair of juveniles accused of being involved in two ram raids which saw about $1000 worth of alcohol stolen from a local pub have been denied bail. The duo appeared before the South Hedland Magistrates Court on October 12 charged with multiple counts of aggravated burglary, stealing and stealing a motor vehicle. It is alleged the two boys stole a vehicle from the Landing Resort about 3am on October 11 and used it to break into the Shell Service Station before driving to South Hedland and ram raiding the Last Chance Tavern. Speaking to the North West Telegraph, Acting Senior Sergeant Matthew Robinson said the juveniles used the Toyota Hilux to damage the front entry of the Shell service station. “They gained entry into the Shell service station and stole a select few items — food and drink — and proceeded to drive the stolen vehicle to the Last Chance Tavern,” he said. “They used the vehicle’s bull bar again to damage the storeroom’s roller door, gaining entry and stealing $1000 worth of alcohol.” Acting Sen. Sgt Robinson said police used CCTV and identified the suspects. “They located some of the stolen property and the two suspects were charged and faced the South Hedland Magistrates Court yesterday where they were refused bail.” Town of Port Hedland Mayor Peter Carter said it was a reminder for people to keep their cars locked up and keys secured. “Don’t leave your keys in the ignition, most of the time keys are left in the ignition and that’s where most of it comes from,” he said. “Be responsible for your car and car keys ... keep it in a safe spot so it’s harder for them to get hold of your car.” Mr Carter said the behaviour was destructive and left businesses on edge about who would be next. “I think Coles Express was hit because the guys were hungry. But they allegedly did thousands of dollars of damage for a packet of chips,” he said. “Its not a good look and you can’t barricade your premises up like Fort Knox. It comes in waves or we have a spate of it and then it goes off. “There’s other towns around the State that have the same problem, but we’ve just got to be vigilant and just keep those keys locked up.” The Last Chance Tavern was targeted in a series of ram raids last year when, in August, eight juveniles smashed the roller doors of the drive-through bottle shop before another group of juveniles smashed through the roller doors in November. The Last Chance Tavern spokesperson last November said the venue had been targeted five times in two months. Last Chance Tavern declined to comment on the most recent ram raids.
