Dogs track crime spree accused Qld teens
Five Queensland teens have been charged with robbery offences following an alleged 120km crime spree.
Police dogs tracked the boys to a shed at Cecil Plains, west of Brisbane, in the early hours of Saturday.
It came about a week after a Volkswagen car was allegedly stolen from the Western Downs town of Chinchilla.
Police allege the car was used in three separate robberies in nearby regional towns.
At about 9pm on Friday, a group of boys were spotted in the car near Dalby, some 200km west of Brisbane.
Police deployed tyre spikes on the car about half-an-hour later, but the car continued for about 40km before the boys abandoned it at Cecil Plains.
It is alleged they stole a Toyota Landcruiser but got it stuck trying to reverse out of a driveway.
The group continued on foot after allegedly threatening the Toyota owner with a metal bar.
Police dogs eventually found the boys hiding in a shed at a Cecil Plains property at 2.15am on Saturday.
The boys, aged 14 to 17, have been charged with robbery offences.
