A bum print left on a glass door may have helped Australian police get to the bottom of a burglary in Victoria.

Last week, three men allegedly broke into a community hall in Wodonga and stole a television.

Police said it was their second visit after earlier causing a number of fire extinguishers to go off inside the hall, damaging the property.

When police arrived to look for clues, they found a bum print on a glass door.

On Tuesday, the Wodonga Crime Investigation Unit charged a 15-year-old boy with burglary, theft and committing an indictable offence while on bail.

The teenager has been bailed to appear at a children's court at a later date.

A 21-year-old and a 22-year-old have also been interviewed in relation to the incident.

Both have been released without charge, pending further enquiries.

The television which was stolen in the alleged burglary is also still to be found
