Tweed cops seize stolen goods during firearm search

Tools, generators, industrial equipment and a vehicle, suspected of being stolen, were seized by police at a property at Kielvale near Murwillumbah yesterday afternoon.

Tweed police discovered the haul on the property on Palmvale Road while searching for firearms, as the property owner is in custody for unrelated  matters.

The investigation was led by Tweed Heads detectives and helped by members of Tweed/Bryon Target Action Group .

They identified a stolen Holden Commodore Senator, as well as the other gear.

The property owner was charged in relation to an outstanding warrant and refused bail and appeared at Tweed Heads Local Court yesterday.

Police have urged anyone who can assist with information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.
