Cars stolen at Kingscliff on Tuesday night
AT least two cars were stolen on Tuesday night in Kingscliff and there was also an unconfirmed report of a third stolen ute.
Tweed Byron LAC duty officer Inspector Jim Kain said between 11pm and 5.45am a 1983 blue Nissan ute was stolen from Orient St, Kingscliff. It was still missing.
Police also confirmed between 5pm and 9.30am a white Holden Commodore sedan was also stolen from Kingscliff St, but came to a halt soon after because its fuel ran out.
Dayne Reeve from Kingscliff also posted a status on the Murwillumbah Buy Swap & Sell Facebook page on Wednesday at 7.58am about a stolen yellow Datsun ute with a black tray, which was still missing.
Police could not confirm this theft or provide any more details.
But other posts on the Facebook status elaborated about the car thefts.
"(They) broke in left the column surround on the ground, a VS ute got pinched too but they left that in the middle of the street out of fuel," Zane Durling said.
"My housemate's car was also broken into, they took off his steering wheel column and tried to hot wire. The thief ended up just stealing a lot of my tools I had in my friend's car 'cause my dog scared him away. It's only a high school kid, small, left his grey and orange hoodie and stuff in my mate's car when he got scared and ran away. It happened around 10-11 pm last night," Joshyy Walsh said.
"I got barely (any) of my stuff back they took all the tools to have more things to break into more cars, but we got his prints and his jumper and some stuff he left so he wasn't too smart."
