Two teenagers who allegedly stole a car and went on a stealing spree were later arrested by police who found them eating at McDonald’s Euroa early yesterday morning.
Benalla police Sergeant Brad McMennemin said the boys, aged 16 and 17, allegedly took a 1993 Landrover Discovery from a Wangaratta home and drove south on Hume Fwy, heading for Melbourne.
Sgt McMennemin said the vehicle broke down and was parked at a truck stop south of the Euroa Service Centre before the boys allegedly took off on foot into town.
Sgt McMennemin said police located the stolen vehicle about 9.30
He said an alarm was activated at Euroa Primary School about 11.30
Sgt Mcmennemin said Benalla police were called to Euroa after a resident reported suspicious behaviour.
He said after ‘‘diligent police work’’ the two bicycles were located parked at the front of McDonald’s Euroa.
He said the boys were found inside eating, and police arrested them about 1.20
The stolen goods were recovered in the boys’ possession, Sgt Mcmennemin said.
The boys, both from Wangaratta, were released pending summons.
