A 12-year-old boy was charged with armed robbery and dealt with under the Youth Justice Act after an incident at Lawnton on October 2.

Police alleged a 32-year-old Warner man was approached by a boy and threatened with a knife at a shop in Ebert Pde about 11am.

The boy demanded cigarettes and vaping canisters before fleeing empty-handed.

He was later found by police hiding in a nearby toilet.

Teens arrested

A 16-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy will appear in the Caboolture Children’s Court on charges including burglary and receiving tainted property after being apprehended by Caboolture police.

Police were conducting patrols in Adelaide Dve, Caboolture South about 6.50am on September 20 when they saw a vehicle they knew to be stolen.

The vehicle had been reported stolen after going missing from a property in Beechwood Place at Warner between 5pm on September 29 and 5.30am on September 30.

It was stopped at a red light behind another vehicle on Michael Ave when the driver accelerated, hitting the vehicle in front.

The occupants allegedly refused to allow police entry to the vehicle.

The 16-year-old girl, from Wamuran, was charged with burglary, receiving tainted property, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, possession of housebreaking implements and obstructing police.

The 17-year-old boy, from Burpengary, was charged with burglary, receiving tainted property, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, possession of house-breaking implements, dangerous operation of a vehicle and obstructing police.

It is unknown how entry was gained to the premises.

A key to the vehicle, bearing Queensland number plates 570-SKW, was stolen from the kitchen bench.
