Drunken teens go on tire-slashing crime spree

DALBY police have two juvenile offenders in custody after a string of vandalism offences.

It is alleged the juveniles slashed nine vehicle tires between 8 and 9pm last night.

In one instance the juveniles slashed three vehicle's tires at the Johnson's Dalby Motor Group car yard, opposite the Dalby Police Station.

Dalby Sergeant Rob Thurn said police used CCTV footage from the dealership to identify the teens.

"We found them last night, but they were intoxicated," he said.

The teens were sent home to sleep off the alcohol before police took them into custody this morning.

"They will be dealt with under the Youth Justice Act," Sgt Thorn said.
