POLICE POWERLESS

Youths as young as four are known to have vandalised an outback church but police cannot act because of the young age of the offenders:

Corrigin resident and church-goer Neil Bowron said he and his wife Nancy discovered the broken windows, the third such attack on the church, and alerted the police

He claims there has been two more instances of vandalism since.

“There’s not much you can do. You can’t put them in jail, you can’t charge them. The kids know that,” Mr Bowron said.

Mr Bowron repaired the window himself. “Hopefully that’s the end of it,” he said.

Sgt. Coumbe said police had been working with the family of the children, as well as the Corrigin Shire and Corrigin District High School to warn children about the consequences of anti-social behaviour.

The “family” of the children.
