A number of young persons are due to be dealt with by Young Police under the Young Offenders Act after their alleged involvement in the theft of a motor vehicle on Tuesday morning.
Between 11pm and 5.30am, a motor vehicle is alleged to have been stolen from an address in Young.
This vehicle was later found in Taylor Road after having crashed at the intersection with Dwyer Drive.
Young Police responded immediately and quickly apprehended a number of young persons.
A number of other youths were identified as allegedly having involvement in the incident.
All juveniles have been spoken to, or will be spoken to soon, police say. The vehicle has been recovered by police.
"This highlights some fantastic work by our officers and shows our on going commitment to public safety, however incidents like these are disappointing to see within our community," Acting Sergeant Chris Bambrick said.
