Aussie teen arrested breaking into police station
SYDNEY (Reuters) - The long arm of the law didn't have to reach too far to arrest one Australian teenager, who was caught breaking into a police station in the early hours of Monday.
Officers working in the back of the police station in a suburb of the southern city of Adelaide heard the front door glass being smashed and found the 16-year old in the front hall.
"A teenage boy has discovered the quickest way of getting arrested is to break into a police station," South Australia state police said in a statement on its website.
About A$2,000 ($1,340) of damage was caused and the boy was denied bail, the statement said.
A police spokesman added the youth did not give a reason for his actions, and may have had "a bit too much to drink."
