Man charged with thefts in Nimbin

A 45-year-old man will appear in court today after being charged with a series of break-ins around the Nimbin area.

Police executed a search warrant at a home on Gungas Road, Nimbin last Tuesday and located a large amount of property, which was believed to be stolen.

The 45-year-old male resident was arrested and charged with 19 offences, including property, drug, and firearm offences.

Following an extensive investigation, Lismore detectives have linked the alleged stolen property to alleged break-ins throughout the Nimbin area between May 2014 and December 2015.

The 45-year-old man was subsequently charged with 20 counts of break, enter and steal, three counts of steal from dwelling and larceny.

He has been granted strict conditional bail and is due to appear at Lismore Local Court on Monday 14 March 2016.
