Two local juvenile males, aged 13 and 14 years old, were arrested
on suspicion of burglary just after 1800hrs yesterday afternoon by
uniformed officers of the Royal Gibraltar Police. The arrest came
about following a report received at the control room regarding two
individuals having just been seen stealing items from within the
changing rooms at the Karate-do-Shotokai Club at Town Range
before being chased by a club member.

The two juveniles were conveyed to NMH where they were further
arrested on suspicion of burglary by detectives investigating a
burglary at the offices of Drummonds Accountants in Heritage
House in Main Street the previous afternoon. Two juveniles had
been found within one of the firm’s offices by a member of staff
one of the Juveniles then assaulted the staff member before both
run off.

They were interviewed in the presence of their respective
appropriate adults and later charged as with:

1 x count of burglary each in respect of the Karate-do-

1 x count of Burglary each in respect of Drummonds

Additionally, the 13 year old was further charged with:
1 x count of assault upon a member of staff at Drummonds

1 x count of possession of a controlled drug.


Both Juveniles, who are currently on court bail, were denied bail
and have been detained in police custody pending their court
appearance before the Juvenile Court today.
