The owner of a local clothing shop, who wished to remain anonymous, told Echonetdaily a woman has been thieving from her shops, as well as others, and then selling the goods at a garage sale from the woman’s home in Byron Bay.
‘But unfortunately the police have been unable to act, as shoplifters need to be caught in the act.’
‘A woman came to our shop with a pair of shorts that were bought at a garage sale, and she said she was unsure whether they were stolen goods or not.
‘We made a police report and the police involved told us that there had been numerous similar complaints about this woman from other shop owners,’ the shopkeeper said.
