Minors charged with theft
Two minors have been charged with theft from a vehicle and released into the care of their guardians.
The minors aged 15 and 17 years old, accused of breaking into a locked vehicle and stealing unspecified property. The duo was arrested on 10 April this year.
Their case was postponed to 21 July so that the juvenile offenders could be screened before their trial commences.
Initially, a warrant of arrest was issued for one of the minors as he failed to make his appearance at the specified time but it was later cancelled.
The guardian of the accused explained that he lives on a reservation farm, which made it difficult for him to commute to the city for the court proceedings. The matter was the directed to social workers until the trial commences.
