A 14-year-old has been apprehended in relation to one of the burglaries in Hornby. Police say eight others aged between 13 and 15 are suspected of what is known as “doorstepping.” Door-stepping is the act of stealing items left outside homes. Senior Constable Bruce Ward said police were able to match a recovered pair of running shoes with the 14-year-old after an article in the Western News. The Bruce Ward owner of the shoes came forward after recognising it from the news article and it meant police could confirm they were stolen, he said. The earlier article in Western News also prompted more calls about door step burglaries in Hornby and Wigram, the latest being 10 days ago. •Turn to page 5 Roadrubber T Y R E S New Tyres - Batteries Quality Secondhand Tyres All at very competitive prices LOOK!!
