Police have arrested and charged a man over an incident involving a car and horse trailer stolen from Bangalow.

About 8.30am on Sunday, December 3, police were called to a service station on Granuaille Road after reports that the stolen vehicle and trailer had been seen refuelling there.

A 28 year-old man allegedly fled the scene on foot after paying for fuel, leaving his wallet and mobile phone behind.

Police patrolled the area and saw a man matching the description running through a yard on George Street, Bangalow, but were subsequently unable to locate the man.

They later received information that the 28-year-old had been seen at licensed premises on Clifford Street, Suffolk Park.

A short time later police located the man, who was arrested and taken to Byron Bay Police Station.

He was charged with an outstanding warrant for the offence of stealing a motor vehicle, taking and and driving a conveyance without consent of the owner, and entering enclosed lands.

The man was refused bail to appear at Tweed Heads Local Court on Monday (December 4).
