THe IGA supermarket in Tweed Valley Way. Photo Google Maps

A man who stowed a few last-minute Christmas goodies down the front of his pants and left a supermarket without paying for them will face court after being spotted in the act.

About 6.40pm on Saturday (December 23) the 36-year-old male was shopping the Tweed Valley IGA Supermarket in South Murwillumbah, where he was seen picking up a number of food items and placing them down the front of his pants.

The man went to a cash register and paid for an item but left the store without paying for the products he had put in his pants.

The man then hid them in the bushes of the nearby car park but, after being confronted by a witness, he returned the stolen items and left the area.

Police attended the store and obtained the details of the incident and subsequently arrested a male on Wollumbin Street, Murwillumbah, for stealing the items from the store.

He was issued a field court attendance notice to attend Murwillumbah Local Court on January 23 for shoplifting.
