Wellington Police have made two further arrests in relation to a spate of arsons in Kilbirnie.
Officer in charge of the Wellington CIB Detective Inspector Paul Basham says as a result of early morning search warrants executed by Police, a 15 year old and a 16 year old are now both facing charges.
"A 15 year old youth will appear in the Wellington Youth Court tomorrow facing six charges of arson and two of burglary. A 16 year old male will appear in the Youth Court on Tuesday next week (27 March 2012) charged with two counts of burglary."
This follows the arrests of two 15 year old males at the weekend, who have both made appearances in the Youth Court this week.
Police also recovered an amount of stolen property as a result of the search warrants executed this morning. The stolen property is believed to have been taken in recent burglaries in the Kilbirnie area.
