TWO teenagers have been arrested after $23,000 worth of equipment was allegedly stolen from Bulli Surf Club over the weekend.
About 3.15am on Sunday, police were alerted after a buggy was allegedly stolen and driven on Bulli Beach before getting bogged in the sand.
Wollongong police attended a short time later and found the buggy unattended. With the assistance of the public, police removed the buggy from the sand and drove it back to the club’s premises on Trinity Row.
On inspection, police saw the premises had been broken into and a number of items had been stolen, including a surf rescue board and a mega-phone.
The stolen items, including the buggy, are estimated to be worth about $23,000.
Following inquiries and a public appeal for information, two teenage boys, aged 16 and 17, were arrested at Wollongong Police Station about 4.10pm on Monday.
The teens will be dealt with under the Young Offenders Act.
