Police have unveiled an ‘Aladdin’s Cave’ of alleged stolen property from a home in Kingscliff today.
On Monday (17 May) a 30-year-old Queensland man was arrested by officers from the Tweed/Bryon Local Area Command and he was subsequently charged with a string of property offences including break and enters and stealing from motor vehicles.
Further investigations led police to a flat in Vulcan Street, Kingscliff, where a search warrant was executed early this morning.
Officers from the Target Action Group entered the premises about 6.30am where they allegedly uncovered large amounts of jewellery, laptops, big screen televisions, tuff books, clothing, entertainment equipment and a number of wallets.
Detective Chief Inspector Shane Diehm, the Crime Manager for the Tweed/Byron Local Area Command, said the officers required a small truck to remove the alleged stolen property from the premises.
“Along with the large amount of property, officers also allegedly discovered an amount of amphetamine and cannabis at the home,” Mr Diehm said.
“The 30- and 37-year-old male occupants of the unit have been arrested and will be facing a string of charges.
“These arrests outline the dedication and commitment our officers have to reducing property-related offences and certainly drug crime in this area.
“I am confident that the arrest of these two men, and the man from Queensland earlier this week, will see a vast reduction in property-related crime in this area.”
