Police have arrested two youths and are looking for a third following a break-in at Whyalla business on Sunday evening.

When patrols arrived, a security officer was present with two boys who had allegedly gained entry to the building by breaking a window. They had also attempted to steal property from inside. A third youth had run off prior to the security officer arriving.

Two 13-year-old boys from Whyalla Norrie and Whyalla Stuart, were charged with aggravated serious criminal trespass, theft, property damage and giving a false name to police. They were both bailed to appear in the Whyalla Youth Court in October.

Investigations are continuing to locate the third suspect.
