Two arrests made over thefts

Port Lincoln Police have arrested two teenagers in connection with the recent spate of thefts and break-ins that occurred overnight on Thursday January 10.

As part of their ongoing investigation, uniform police and detectives carried out a search of a home in the township on Friday, uncovering items allegedly stolen from a break-in the day prior, and from a theft that occurred on January 6.

The man was refused bail and will appear in the Port Lincoln Magistrates Court today, and the woman has been bailed to appear in court on February 12.
