A 15-year-old Broome boy has been jailed for five months after taking part in a “crime wave” in the Cable Beach area just two days after being released from custody. He appeared before Broome Children’s Court where he was convicted of a number of burglary and stealing charges that occurred on June 28. The court was told he and several others were first spotted on CCTV breaking in to the Cable Beach General Store at 2:05am, wearing shirts to hide their faces, before fleeing the scene when security alarms went off. The group also robbed the Divers Tavern, the Beaches of Broome resort, a Sanctuary Road property and the Cable Beach Backpackers hostel, and stole four bottles of alcohol, a T-shirt, mobile phones, a motorcycle and a Mitsubishi Lancer in the space of two and a half hours. The court was told the boy had been released from custody after being placed on a four-month intensive youth supervision order, just two days before the crime wave. In sentencing, Magistrate Stephen Sharratt told the boy it was clear he had “no interest in his own rehabilitation” when his record showed an extensive history of burglaries and supervision order breaches dating back to 2017.
