Man arrested over thefts in Banora Point

A MAN has been refused bail and will appear at Tweed Heads Local Court today following an arrest at Banora Point early this morning.

Tweed Byron LAC police responded to a call of a person searching through motor vehicles parked on Bluehaze Crescent late last night.

Upon arrival at the scene, police spotted the man and after a short chased he was arrested at about 3.30am.

The man was charged with three offences, including two counts of goods in custody and being in public place with intent to commit indictable offence.

Detective Inspector Brendon Cullen said police will allege the man was attempting to break into motor vehicles.

“It’s a good arrest because there has been a number of similar incidents,” Det Ins Cullen said.

“Since it was so early this morning some people may not realise their car has been broken into.

“If that’s the case then we case ask them to contact police at Tweed Heads Police Station and Crime Stoppers.”
