Two teenagers have been charged after police allegedly caught them leaving the scene of a break-in at Bolwarra Heights in the middle of the day.
Police said two males were seen gaining access to a Bolwarra Park Drive home about 1.30pm Monday.
It is alleged that phones, Opal cards, a car security card, an iPad, an Xbox and bank cards were stolen from the house.
A witness called police, who responded and arrested two males outside the house. Police also recovered the stolen property.
An 18-year-old Maitland man was charged with break, enter and steal and granted conditional bail to appear in Maitland Local Court next month.
A 15-year-old from Newcastle was dealt with under the Youth Offenders Act.
