Men charged after ‘lifesaving’ defibrillators stolen from SE Qld shopping centre

TWO young men have been charged after two defibrillators were stolen from a Carindale shopping centre earlier this month.

The pair were taken into custody today, a day after Queensland Police released CCTV footage of the incident and appealed for public assistance.

Detectives said the lifesaving equipment was stolen from separate levels of the Carindale Street complex around 7.20pm on September 5.

One defibrillator has since been recovered, however the other unit remains outstanding.

An 18-year-old Salisbury man and a 22-year-old Parkinson man have both been charged with one count of stealing.

They are both due to appear in the Holland Park Magistrates Court next month.
