Schoolgirls allegedly break into vape shop in Adelaide



Two pre-teens have been charged following the alleged robbery of a vape shop in Adelaide. 

A pair of 12-year-olds allegedly broke into Hero Vapes on Sturt Road, Tonsley, taking a haul of vapes before fleeing the scene.

The girls can be seen seemingly trying to disarm the store's security system on CTV footage obtained by 9News.

The store's owner, David, said he would increase security measures following the break-in.

"They threw a brick through the window, rummaged through the stock, grabbed some vapes and ran off," he said.

"They [also] went around the back, went to the power board and cracked some switches."

A police dog squad tracked down the alleged suspects shortly after the break-in.

They were charged with criminal trespassing and theft.

The alleged break-in comes as the federal government drafts laws to ban vape sales without prescriptions.

David told 9News he was afraid more break-ins like these will happen after the laws come into effect. 

The girls were released on bail and will appear in court in August.
