A 20-year-old man has been arrested and charged for “senseless” damage to businesses in the northern suburbs of Darwin and released on bail, NT Police said.
Strike Force Trident arrested and charged the man yesterday in connection to a series of unlawful entries in Malak, Anula, Casuarina, Nightcliff and Millner since January, police said.
They did not name the businesses, but it appears none of the unlawful entries were at private residences.
The man has been charged with six counts of unlawful entry of a building, six counts of damaging property and five counts of stealing.
He was bailed to appear in court on March 15.
“All of these incidents resulted in senseless damage to businesses for the theft of relatively small items,” said acting superintendent Mark Bland. “Strike Force Trident will continue to put property offenders before the courts.”
