Bottle shop robbers are caught a day after theft

DALBY Police have arrested three people in relation to a bottle shop break and enter earlier this week.

The Thirsty Camel on Nicholson St, Dalby, was broken into on Tuesday morning at 3.30am, with several bottles of spirits being taken, according to police.

Police investigated the incident for roughly a day, before being able to make a break-through.

A spokeswoman from the Dalby station, said three people had been arrested and charged early Wednesday morning.

Two of the offenders will be dealt with under the Youth Justices Act, and are scheduled to appear in court later this month.

The other offender, David Morris, pleaded guilty on Wednesday to the charge in the Oakey Magistrates Court.

Morris was sentenced to three months prison for a charge of break and enter, and was given an additional four months for other charges.

He will be released on parole on August 22.
