Police have arrested a 30-year-old woman they say was caught urinating in Byron Bay’s Railway Park on Thursday afternoon (July 13) and who subsequently stole a sign belonging to the Visitor Information Centre.

At about 4pm, police were called to the Visitor Information Centre on Jonson Street where the woman was allegedly urinating out the front, and in full view of the centre’s users and staff.

The female was asked to leave the area and upon leaving stole a sign used by the Centre. The woman then ‘decamped from the scene,’ according to police, who subsequently spotted her and issued her with infringement notices for offensive behaviour and larceny.

The drug was seized and the man issued with a court attendance notice to appear before Byron Bay Local Court on August 10.
