Two men have been charged following several alleged car break-ins at Wallsend. 

Just before 3:00am on Saturday (the 9th of September, 2023), Newcastle City Police were patrolling the Wallsend area when they were flagged down by members of the public who said two men had allegedly broken into several cars nearby.

A short time later, the officers stopped two men, aged 22 and 39, on Minmi Road at Wallsend and seized a number of items of interest, including tools, six mobile phones, keys, medication, syringes, a box of ammunition, ID documents, letters, and two knives.

Police believe the items had been taken during the car break-ins.

The two men were taken to Waratah Police Station and they were both charged with multiple theft, break and enter charges. 

They were refused bail to appear before Newcastle Local Court today (Monday the 11th of September).
