REVEALED: Pair allegedly behind Roma crime wave arrested

Two teenagers have been charged by police after a spate of break-ins in Roma on a single morning.

The 16-year-old and 17-year-old boys are accused of breaking into houses and cars at four local properties located on Allen St, Lovell St, Wyndham St, and Alexander Avenue in the very early morning of January 18.

The 16-year-old boy has been charged with entering premises with intent, burglary and commit indictable offence, a Queensland Police spokesman said.

He is due to face the Roma Children's Court in February, but will eventually have to face the judge in the Children's Court of Queensland for the indictable offence.

The 17-year-old is currently charged with entering premises with intent, but other charges are still in the process.

A police spokesman said both boys are currently out on bail.
