Police say youth gangs moving away from home invasions to ‘soft targets’

Police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton says youth gangs are moving away from committing home invasions to robbing service stations for cigarettes.

After a wave of brazen home invasions and carjackings in recent months, Mr Ashton told Neil Mitchell a new trend had emerged where the same offenders were picking ‘soft targets’.

‘We are seeing more robberies and supermarkets and 7/11 service stations,’ he said.

‘They are currently what we are seeing.

‘They are targets that are often open all night.’
