Laidley police officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Jim McDonald said the offenders went on the crime spree from midnight to shortly after 4am on Sunday morning, which included break and enters at Brightview, Free Range Kids Child Care and MCM Hair.

He said police received information from a Lockyer Valley Regional Council employee and as a result a 26-year-old female was found in a car at Free Range Kids Child Care.

"Police from Laidley and Gatton cordoned the area and the police dog squad, shortly after, captured two male offenders," Snr Sgt McDonald said.

A 26-year-old female from Bundamba was charged with three counts of break and enter, one count of driving unlicensed, one count of possession of dangerous drugs and one count of contravening the direction or requirement of police.

A 16-year-old male was charged with three counts of unlawful entry.
