Unauthorised dwelling capital of the world!

Could Main Arm’s title as the Unauthorised Dwelling Capital of the World be under threat?

Police have charged a man after a pursuit in Casino on Thursday (February 9).

Officers spotted a wanted man in a silver Holden Commodore while patrolling West Street, Casino, at about 10.30pm.

When the driver failed to respond to police indications to stop, a pursuit ensued.

It was terminated due to the man’s dangerous driving but, a short time later, police found the Commodore abandoned on Arthur Street.

A 25-year-old man was arrested in a house nearby and taken to Casino Police Station, where he was charged with not stopping during a police pursuit, car theft, unlicensed driving and resisting arrest.

The man was refused bail to appear at Lismore Local Court on Friday (February 10).
