It will be alleged that around 4.10am on Tuesday November 20, the teens broke into a house at Adelaide Crescent, Ormeau Hills, where they have stolen car-keys. The teens then allegedly used those keys to steal a silver 2009 Holden Commodore parked at the front of the property.
Around 11.50am, the teens allegedly forced entry to private residence at Station Road, Bethania, where they stole $2000 cash, car-keys and a red 2005 Toyota Camry.
Around 12.30pm, the teens allegedly attended an address at Lifestyle Close, Waterford West, in the stolen Holden Commodore, where the two males exited the vehicle and gained access to the property. They then allegedly threatened the 70-year-old male occupant with a knife before stealing his white 2007 Hyundai Sonata.
Around 2.00pm, the stolen Holden Commodore was allegedly used to commit a petrol theft from a service station at Peachy Road, Ormeau.
Around 2.30pm, the two male teens allegedly attended an address at Jondaryan Street, Ormeau Hills, where they threatened the 66-year-old male occupant with a tomahawk, demanding keys to two vehicles parked in the garage.

Just after 5:00pm the following day (Wednesday November 21), a 61-year-old woman exited her car at a business on Coral Street at Loganlea, when she was approached by one of the male teens. It will be alleged that the 18-year-old threatened the woman with a small axe and stole her car keys, before the trio fled the scene in her yellow 2016 Hyundai Accent.
