Two boys aged 10 and 13 have been charged after allegedly damaging several vehicles at a car yard in Perth's south-east.

The pair allegedly entered the car yard on Albany Highway in Maddington around 12.30am on Sunday and jumped on the vehicle's before throwing paving bricks at the cars.

A total of 26 vehicles were damaged to the value of around $30,000.  

The boys allegedly again entered the same property at 10.15pm on the same day, and similarly damaged a further 10 vehicles resulting in around $10,000 damage.  

A 10-year-old boy of Maddington and a 13-year-old boy of Maddington have each been charged with two counts of criminal damage.

Both will appear before the Perth Children’s Court today.
