On Friday (December 8), police in Tweed Heads turned their attention to potential criminal cyclists and made two arrests.
At about 12.10pm, police patrolling along Kennedy Drive Tweed Heads West stopped a female riding a pushbike without a helmet.
A number of features on the bicycle caused police to suspect it to be stolen.
On searching the woman police discovered a crystal substance, which they allege is methyl-amphetamine. They seized substance and the bicycle.
The 24-year-old Tweed Heads woman will appear in Tweed Heads Local Court on January 8 next year charged with having goods in her possession suspected of being stolen and possession of a prohibited drug.
About 3.20pm the same day police patrolling the same stretch of street noticed a male who they have dealt with previously riding his pushbike.
He was stopped and the say appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

After questioning the man police ascertained the phone had been stolen a number of days earlier in Queensland. The 40-year-old Tweed Heads West man was issued a Court Attendance Notice for the offence of receiving property stolen outside NSW and will appear at Tweed Heads Local Court on January 8.
