A group of teenagers have been arrested in relation to a series of late-night burglaries across Busselton over the past two months.

Of the seven teenage boys, aged between 13 and 16, three appeared in Busselton Children’s Court on Tuesday after being arrested by police last week.

It is alleged their crime spree took place over three major events when police say the group broke into popular holiday spot Mandalay Holiday Resort, West Busselton Primary School, and Busselton Primary School — stealing property from each location.

It is alleged at Mandalay Resort the group stole scooters belonging to a guests and two of the teens stole a car.

At each of the schools, it is alleged the group stole laptops, iPads and cash from the premises.
