A woman has been charged with stealing a motor vehicle after a Silver Mitsubishi was taken along Wharf Street Murwillumbah.

About 11am on last Thursday a female parked a stolen car before entering a surf shop, selecting 11 items of clothing and running from the store.

The woman then drove away without making any attempt to pay for the items of clothing, police say.

The accused then drove the Mitsubishi to the BP Service Station on Tweed Valley Way in South Murwillumbah where she filled up with petrol and entered the store.

Police who were patrolling for the stolen vehicle noticed it parked at the service station and arrested the 27-year-old who was found hiding in a store room.

The woman was taken to Tweed Heads Police Station for questioning. Bail was refused and she will appear before Tweed Heads Local Court today.
