Interview with Janet Swain

Janet Swain is 14. She’s in love with the tragic and brilliant cellist Jacquleine DuPré. But one day her mother arrives home with a bassoon.

A boy has been charged in relation to stolen vehicles at Casuarina after police received numerous calls about a Toyota Hilux being driven in the Casuarina area at about 1am today (Saturday 4 May 2019).

A short time later the vehicle was involved in a minor collision, after which the driver fled the scene.

Officers from Tweed/Byron Police District attended and patrolled the area, locating a 16-year-old boy in the driver’s seat of a Volkswagen Golf on Windsong Way.

The boy was arrested while he was attempting to start the vehicle. A female passenger, aged 15, was also arrested.

It’s alleged the boy broke into another parked vehicle at the same location and stole the keys to the Golf.

Both the boy and girl were taken to Tweed Heads Police Station where the boy was charged with enter vehicle without consent of owner, take and drive conveyance, learner not accompanied, custody of knife in public place, and malicious damage.

He was refused bail to appear at Tweed Heads Children’s Court on Monday (6 May 2019).

The girl is expected to be dealt with under the Young Offender’s Act.
