A police strikeforce targeting break-ins around Lismore yesterday charged another person, taking the total arrests so far to six people.

Strikeforce Koraus, formed in June, yesterday arrested a 24-year-old man from East Lismore and charged with him aggravated break and enter and committing a serious indictable offence.

He will appear in the Lismore Local Court today.

Previously, detectives had charged five other people – four men and a woman – and recovered stolen property after search warrants were executed in Lismore and Goonellabah on 7 July.

Property recovered included computers and tablets, allegedly stolen from a public school in Clunes, as well as camping equipment, tools, coin collections and sporting equipment being proceeds from numerous break and enters in the Goonellabah area.
