Teens charged after allegedly stealing BMW from Gold Coast home

A 16-YEAR-OLD girl and two teenage boys have been arrested and charged after allegedly stealing a BMW, jewellery and cash from a house on the Gold Coast.

Police said the trio allegedly broke into the home on Lysterfield Rise at Upper Coomera sometime between 11am and 2pm on Sunday.

Once inside the property, the teens allegedly rummaged through the house and pocketed several mobile phones and a stash of cash and jewellery.


Police said the teens then allegedly packed the stolen goods into the home owner’s blue BMW sedan and drove it away from the scene.

Their time on the run, however, was short lived after police spotted the stolen BMW being driven through Brisbane shortly after 7pm last night.

Officers successfully deployed a tyre deflation device at Riverview, but the vehicle continued to drive through the Redbank Plains area before eventually coming to a stop in Bundamba.

A 16-year-old girl from Dinmore and two 15-year-old boys from Brassall and North Booval were arrested.

The teens have since been charged with one count each of burglary and commit indictable offence, receiving tainted property and unlawful use of a motor vehicle.
