Men accused of 'revenge attack'

TWO MEN have been accused of being behind a “revenge attack” on a vacant Pialba home this week, which left the owners with a damage bill of more than $30,000.

Police said the Neils Street property had been broken into late Tuesday afternoon.

An inspection of the property yesterday revealed holes through walls in the lounge room, kitchen and bedrooms.

Rubbish, including used condoms, food wrappers and mouldy drink cartons, littered the halls and front lawn.

Furniture was upended, torn or soiled and side windows were smashed.

Two males, aged 19 and 20, have been charged with wilful damage and trespassing.

The men had allegedly been evicted from the home last week following a tenancy dispute.

They were arrested on Tuesday night and spent a few hours in the watchhouse before being released on police bail. They will front the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court at a date to be set.
