Two budding teenage cat burglars snipped the wires to cameras before raiding a Mosgiel dairy.
Police were called to Knox Milk Bar on Gordon Rd after a report from an alarm company at about 11.50pm on Thursday, Dunedin Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen said.
Officers found the offenders had climbed the building to cut camera wires, before smashing a window to gain entry.
The pair stole an assortment of grocery items before fleeing on foot.
Two dog units tracked the offenders and found stolen items and a large knife during their search, before spotting two people running through properties.
The dogs tracked the pair’s scent, and officers later apprehended two 14-year-old boys.
The pair would be referred to Youth Aid, Dinnissen said.
Police also stopped two drivers on suspicion of drink-driving overnight, one who was more than four times the legal limit, while at 2am on Friday officers were called to a central city McDonald’s after reports a woman had become agitated over her burger order, arresting her friend after he hurled abuse at them.
Officers were also called to a fight on Dundas St in Dunedin’s student quarter, later stopping a drunk 21-year-old man who tried to drive away from the scene.
