Teenage boys arrested with shotgun after car crash

TWO 14-year-olds have been arrested for allegedly posessing a stolen shotgun and ammunition after their late night crime spree came to a dramatic end with a car crash in Murgon. 

Investigations began after a Holden ute was stolen from a Murgon address and crashed on Saturday night, July 11, which caused extensive damage to the vehicle.

It will be alleged that between Saturday night and Sunday morning, the owner of the ute reported to police that his vehicle has been stolen from his home, after his car keys were located by an unknown person.
