A man is due to appear in court in July after being charged with a number of offences when police pulled over a stolen car in Byron Bay on Saturday (June 7).

About 3.20pm, Traffic and Highway Patrol officers were patrolling Ewingsdale Road, Byron Bay, as part of Operation Stay Alert, when they noticed a Nissan Micra hatchback that had been reported stolen from a Queensland address in May.

They followed the car to Shirley Street, where it was pulled over without incident.

The 36-year-old male driver and his two male passengers were arrested and taken to Byron Bay Police Station.

The driver was issued with Court Attendance Notices for possessing property stolen outside NSW, driving while unlicensed and two counts of fraud relating to failing to pay for petrol at service stations in Moorland and Taree.

He is due to appear before Byron Bay Local Court on Thursday 10 July 2014.

The two passengers are not believed to have known about the offences and were released from custody.
