Asbestos released in attack

JUVENILE offenders with little regard for their own health and safety have allegedly smashed holes in asbestos walls in Urangan.

A house in King St was under renovation when offenders damaged the property using unknown implements to smash holes in the walls, probably unaware they were releasing asbestos particles as they were doing so.

A police spokesman said the incident was reported on Monday and was believed to have occurred between 12.30pm and 1.30pm on June 12.

The spokesman said nothing was reported stolen from the property.

The spokesman said officers would be following up with a number of juvenile suspects over the coming days.

The property was said to be an old house, built prior to laws regarding asbestos building supplies in Queensland.

Any witnesses to the offence are encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
