A TEEN who took part lighting multiple fires and breaking into numerous buildings in Murwillumbah has been charged with breaking his bail conditions.

An investigation led police to a 15-year-old Murwillumbah teen who is believed to be the ring leader of the night time crime spree pack.

Tweed-Byron crime manager Acting Inspector Saul Wiseman said the teen had already broken his bail.

The young offender was referred to a youth justice conference under the Youth Offenders Act.

"Subsequently he was charged with an affray (street fighting) matter and he was on bail," Acting Insp Wiseman said.

"He breached his bail by not adhering to his curfew."

The teen was supposed to be in doors between 6pm to 7am every night.

He failed to obey the rules and was a wanted man until officers found and charged him with a breach of his bail this morning.

In January the NSW Fire and Rescue Service was receiving up to three calls a night about fires around town and windows being smashed at Repco, the Red Cross building, Debelles Cafe and many more businesses on King St and Brisbane St.

The rebellious teen is due to appear in court today.
