AN EIGHT-year-old boy has admitted to smashing nine glass panels at the front of the Goonellabah Sports and Aquatic Centre on Boxing Day.

Police said the incident occurred at around 6pm and two young boys were captured on CCTV footage throwing rocks at the centre.

Following the incident police launched an investigation.

A 12-year-old Goonellabah boy was spoken to on December 29 by officers, and police also spoke to an eight-year-old Goonellabah boy on January 2.

Police said the eight-year-old admitted to smashing the windows, stating that he was "bored".

Due the boy's age, no formal action can be taken.

The 12-year-old told police he was with the eight-year-old boy before and after he smashed the glass panels.

Both boys have been banned from the Goonellabah Sports and Aquatic Centre.
