What police are calling a ‘crime spree’ has seen a teenage boy charged with several break and enter offences in the Byron Bay area.

Police will allege that the 14-year-old boy and another unknown person, entered several properties on Carlyle and Cowper streets, Byron Bay between 1.30pm and 4pm on Monday May 13.

During this time, the pair stole numerous items, including a scooter, three tablet devices and cash.

About 5.40pm, officers from Tweed/Byron Police District arrested the boy on Jonson Street, Byron Bay following a foot pursuit. The second person fled the scene.

He was refused bail to face a Children’s Court today (Tuesday 14 May 2019).

Investigations are continuing.
