A man has been charged over numerous alleged steal from motor vehicle offences on the far north coast.

During March, April and May this year, numerous incidents have taken place along the Marine Parade, Kingscliff beach car parks, where cars have been broken into and cash, cards and mobile phones stolen from vehicles.

About 8.45am on Thursday, 3 May, police from Tweed/Byron Police District noticed a man acting suspiciously around the beach car park area.

Police watched the man for a period of time. The man was seen to break into a vehicle, at which time police arrested him.

Officers allegedly located methamphetamine in his possession. He also directed police to an area where he had stored items stolen from motor vehicles earlier that day.

He was taken to Tweed Heads Police Station and charged with larceny (x4), enter vehicle without consent (x4), and possess prohibited drug.

He was granted conditional bail to appear at Tweed Heads Local Court on Monday 4 June 2018.
