Northern Territory Police are calling for information after a number of unlawful entries in Katherine.

Overnight, 7 locations were unlawfully entered, including 2 government buildings, by an unknown group of individuals. Nearly all of the businesses were located on Katherine Terrace, with one on First Street.

A Hyundai Staria Load was stolen from one of the locations and later observed driving dangerously around the CBD from 2:30am. The vehicle reportedly narrowly missed a number of pedestrians on Katherine Terrace.

Tyre Deflation Devices were set up to deploy in an effort to apprehend the vehicle safely.

The vehicle was located abandoned a short time later in Katherine East.

Senior Sergeant Warren Scott said “Strike Force Cerberus and the Northern Investigations Section are currently investigating and the vehicle has been seized for analysis.

“This sort of behaviour is completely unacceptable and Katherine police are working tirelessly to identify and hold the person’s responsible accountable for their actions.

“As a community, we need to stay vigilant with our property, like car keys and jewellery. Always ensure that you lock your doors at night or when you are not home to deter opportunistic thieves. Always remember to Stop. Look. Lock.

“Police are urging anyone with information on the unlawful entries, or dangerous driving, to make contact on 131 444. Please quote reference 10188904.”
