Police charge alleged axe-wielding meat thief
A 24-year-old Murwillumbah woman has been charged after an alleged axe-wielding meat theft in Coles Murwillumbah.
The woman was also charged with outstanding offences against police.
Tweed Byron LAC supervisor Brad Stewart said the woman was arrested in Murwillumbah's CBD at 3.15pm on October 5, following the initial incident on September 27.
"She was seen near the shops, police were called and she was identified by a person who was there when the offence took place," he said.
The woman was arrested and charged with assault, going armed with intent to commit indictable offence and stealing over the alleged Sunnyside Mall incident.
Outstanding warrants also led to the woman being charged with offences against police, including assault.
The woman will appear in Tweed Heads court on October 8.
