Banora Point trouble maker apprehended by police

TWEED police were forced to cross the border to apprehend a Banora Point trouble maker this morning.

The man, 23, was wanted on an outstanding probation and parole warrant.

Tweed-Byron Local Area Command crime manager Acting Inspector Saul Wiseman said it was a good arrest by police.

"The man ran from police and climbed up a building near the eagle in Coolangatta," he said.

"Residents were a bit scared."

The man is currently at the Southport watch house but will be extradited this afternoon.

Acting Insp Wiseman said police will be questioning him.

"We will be seeking his assistance in relation to a number of offences in the Tweed area," he said.
