Northern Territory police have arrested a teenage boy for stealing a forklift and driving it into a shop to steal cigarettes.
The 14-year-old is alleged to have been part of a group who last month rammed the forklift into a shop in Palmerston.
The boy was arrested at a house in Moulden with another teenager, who is charged with other offences.
Police say the second teenager is charged with breaking into a Moulden home over Easter and stealing computer consoles and games.
Police in Alice Springs have charged two juveniles after a car was stolen from a hotel and turned up in a remote community.
Eight cars at the hotel were broken into on Tuesday night, and one was stolen.
Police allege the vehicle was driven to Santa Teresa, 80 kilometres on a dirt road outside of Alice Springs.
Two boys, aged 12 and 14, are expected to face court in Alice Springs today.
Police in Darwin say two cars were stolen from the same home in Berry Springs this morning.
Superintendent Rob Farmer says the home owner on Finn Crescent woke up to hear his ute being driven away.
He says when the man went out to chase one thief he was passed by other thieves driving his second car.
“The occupant of the house has tried to pursue the vehicles in his daughter’s car, but he hasn’t been able to catch up,” Supt Farmer said.
“They were last seen on Channel Island Road and a reminder to people to also secure their vehicles because it appears the keys were left in both of these cars.”
