A 27 year old Queensland man has been charged after several stealing offences in Ballina last week.

Police will allege that on Friday, September 1, the 27 year old went to a Ballina supermarket where he stole an unamed item.

A short time later he entered a sports store and stole four pair of shoes and clothing.

Staff chased the man and he dropped the shoes.

Police arrested him a short time later.

When searched, he was found to be in possession of identification and car keys that did not belong to him and more property stolen from the sports store.

Police then located the car he was using and seized more property.

The man was taken to Ballina Police Station where he was charged with two counts of shoplifting, goods in custody and had an outstanding warrant executed.

Further inquiries are taking place into the property found inside the car.

He has been refused bail and will appear in Ballina Local Court this week.
