Northern Territory Police have charged a youth in relation to a vehicle that was stolen earlier this month at Channel Island.
On 23 September 2021, a 16-year-old male allegedly stole a Toyota Utility from a boat ramp at Channel Island.
The alleged offender has then attended a service station in Bakewell on the same day, where he stole a quantity of fuel before fleeing scene.
The vehicle was abandoned later that evening in the Marlow’s Lagoon area.
The 16-year-old surrendered himself to police yesterday at the Palmerston Police Station. Strike Force Trident detectives have charged him with:
- Damage property
- Aggravated unlawful use of a motor vehicle
- Drive whilst unlicensed
He was bailed to appear in court on 4 October 2021.
