Tweed/Byron police detectives have arrested a man over a spate of thefts from Tweed Shire Council facilities.

Police also seized a number plate that allegedly belongs to a car stolen from Coolangatta six years ago and a number of tools such as concrete drills, concrete cutting saws, generator and hammer drills of unknown origin, valued at around $20,000.

The man was bailed to appear before the Tweed Heads Local Court today (Monday December 18).
