They were later charged with burglary and the pair, who cannot be named, were convicted at Nottinghamshire Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday (19 October).

One of the teenagers was referred to the Nottingham City Youth Justice Service for nine months and ordered to pay £300 compensation.

The other teenager was referred to the Lincolnshire Youth Justice Service for nine months and ordered to pay £300 compensation.

Youth justice teams work with young people that get into trouble with the law.

They look into the background of a young person and try to help them stay away from crime.

They also:

  • run local crime prevention programmes
  • help young people at the police station if they’re arrested
  • help young people and their families at court
  • supervise young people serving a community sentence

Detective Sergeant Jackie Price, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This kind of lawlessness will not be tolerated.

“We will continue to tackle burglaries across the county and bring to justice those involved in this type of criminality.”
