RELEASED TO MEDIA AT 9:40 AM ON FRIDAY 15 MAY 2009
The States of Jersey Police are continuing to target youths who commit crime in the Island.
Five youths were arrested yesterday (Thursday 14 May) on suspicion of causing malicious damage, following a call from a member of the public who had seen a group of teenagers allegedly daubing graffiti on the Underpass at approximately 14:45 pm.
The group consisted of a 15 year old girl and four males; a 16 year old boy, two 17 year old boys and an 18 year old man.
All were at Police Headquarters helping Police with their enquiries yesterday, and all have now been released pending further enquiries.
In a separate incident on Wednesday, three teenage girls were arrested on suspicion of shoplifting offences.
One 15 year old girl has now been released pending further enquiries, while the two 14 year old girls have now been charged with various shoplifting offences in St Helier, including the areas of Snow Hill, Gloucester Street, Colomberie, and Charing Cross. One of the girls will appear in Court this afternoon.
Duty officer Inspector Tim Barnes said: ˜The States of Jersey Police are actively committed to targeting youths whose actions and behaviour cause distress to others and impact on the quality of life in Jersey.'
