Two teenagers allegedly stole $15,000 worth of kitesurfing equipment during a competition in the Mid West.

Dongara Police have charged two 19-year-olds after a search on a property on Linthorne Road in Port Denison yesterday.

It is alleged the equipment was stolen during Port Denison's annual kitesurfing competition, Kitestock, on February 15 and 16.

According to police, the two men allegedly drove to South Beach and the Port Denison Marina and stole the items from the Dongara Tourist Park, Dongara Denison Beach Holiday Park and Dongara/Denison Surf Life Saving Club.

At the time these offences were committed, the annual Kitestock, kite surfing event was being held at South Beach.

The pair was also charged over a string of diesel fuel thefts from a Port Denison mine site over several months.

Both men were arrested and charged each with 10 counts of stealing and five counts of unlawful trespass.

They are due to appear in Geraldton Magistrates Court on May 5.

A third person of interest is yet to be spoken to by police.
