Labor MP responds to her party’s pro coal/gas agenda

While the Liberal-Nationals parties are wedded to fossil fuels through political donations, and their employees oscillate between government jobs and the mining sector, Labor have also supported the introduction of new gas and coal mines, despite the urgent warning to reduce carbon emissions by climate scientists.

A woman has been charged and a man is being sought following an aggravated break-in at Banora Point early Sunday morning (December 3).

Just before 3.30am, police from Tweed Byron Local Area Command responded to reports of a break-in at a home on Firestone Drive.

They allege that a man and a woman broke into the home and threatened the 41-year-old male occupant with a knife before assaulting him and tying him up.

The resident was able to escape and notify authorities. He was treated at the scene for facial injuries but declined hospital treatment.

Officers searched the house and allegedly located a woman inside.

She was arrested and taken to Tweed Heads Police Station where she was later charged with aggravated breaking and entering, committing a serious indictable offence – inflicting actual bodily harm, taking/detaining person in company with intent to obtain advantage, and goods in custody.

She was refused bail and will appear in Tweed Heads Local Court today (Monday, December 4).

Meanwhile, police are still searching for a man who they believe may be able to assist with their inquiries.

He is described as being about 35 years old, of Caucasian appearance with black hair and was wearing a grey top and black-coloured jeans at the time of the attack.

The man allegedly stole a silver-coloured Ford Kuga SUV from the home, bearing specialised NSW ‘Broncos’ number plates with the registration number ‘04LIFE’.

The car was sighted in the Tweed Heads CBD about 10am on Sunday.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Tweed Heads Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/.
