Abouchar honoured with Order of Australia

A 17-year-old youth has been charged with malicious damage after the window of a Lismore chemist shop was smashed in on Wednesday night.

Police say around 8pm on Wednesday the 17 year old was riding a BMX bicycle along Woodlark Street, and stopped out the front of the chemist shop.

They allege he ‘shouldered’ the window before kicking it, causing the glass to break, then used his bike to cause further damage.

Police were called and witnesses pointed out the suspect who by this time was riding away from the scene. Police gave chase and apprehended him in Larkin Lane.

The teen was taken to Lismore Police Station where he was charged with malicious damage. He was refused police bail to attend Lismore Childrens Court today (Thursday 5 June).
