A 27-year-old man was arrested in Ruskin Street, Byron Bay, on Monday following a spate of break-ins in recent weeks.
But it may be to early for residents to breathe a sigh of relief, as police believe more people were involved in the house and car robberies recently taking place in the town.
Tweed-Byron police have confirmed that the man faced local court yesterday.
They have also reminded residents to take simple steps to avoid becoming victims.
Chief inspector Brendan Cullen said the ‘vast majority’ of the places broken into were unlocked overnight.
[It provides] ‘easy entry for people to get into these places – so we need to be vigilant about our security,’ he told ABC radio.
