Police have apprehended one boy and another was handed in by his mother after they were chased from a Linden property last night.

Sergeant Maurice Parker, of Porirua police, said the property's occupant found the two 16-year-old males in the house at about 6pm and chased them away.

After descriptions were provided of the two teenagers, one was located shortly after police were called, and the second was brought into the police station by his mother later in the evening.

"It appears these boys have been knocking on doors to establish if anyone is home before breaking in," Mr Parker said.

"They may be responsible for several other similar burglaries in the Tawa and Linden areas."

They will both appear in Porirua Youth Court next week.

It was recommended that residents ensure their properties are secure and any suspicious activity should be reported to police.
