A 16-year-old Mahomets Flats youth has been given a juvenile caution following a report of youths using slingshots being used to fire at signs and cars yesterday.

About 10.15am, police patrolled the Rangeway and Tarcoola area where one of the youths described by members of the public was located.

A search uncovered a quantity of rocks in his jacket pocket and a factory-produced slingshot.

The items were seized and the juvenile caution issued.
