Juvenile offenders with little regard

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

A house in King St was under renovation when offenders damaged the property by 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 yesterday and officers will be following up with a number of juvenile suspects over the coming days.
