Aged care provider Warrigal is beefing up security at its Albion Park Rail village after residents were recently robbed in their sleep.
Police have charged a 16-year-old boy who allegedly gained entry to two units at the Pine Street community between 7pm last Wednesday and 7am the next morning.
Police say the teen was able to withdraw cash from an ATM using the stolen cards a short time later.
The teen appeared in court on Tuesday charged with two counts of break, enter and steal. He cannot be named because he is a juvenile.
A spokesman for Warrigal said no other residents were impacted by the incident, which has prompted a review of security measures.
"The complex at Warrigal Albion Park Rail is a tight-knit community and the safety of staff, residents and villagers is of utmost importance," a spokesman said.
"As a result of this incident Warrigal is placing additional security at Albion Park Rail and will conduct an independent internal investigation, to gauge if there is a need to review their security measures.
"Warrigal is extremely disappointed that this has occurred and will continue to provide assistance to police and to support the families, and residents impacted by this incident."
