COVID-19 vaccination clinic opens at Tweed Mall

Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSWLHD) has announced that a new location for getting the COVID -19 vaccination has opened today in Tweed Heads.

Officers from the Tweed/Byron Police District launched Operation Marauder in late January 2020, after a spike in vehicles being stolen, property theft from unsecured vehicles and subsequent fraud offences.

Now, police are encouraging members of the public to remain vigilant.

Since the operation began, police have arrested 12 people and seen a decline in offences in the past few weeks.

The operation focuses on prevention, response and disruption. To prevent these crimes, police are seeking urgent community assistance to make property theft more difficult for opportunistic offenders.

This week, police responded to five incidents involving car theft, stealing from a motor vehicle and break-and-enter in the Tweed Heads and Kingscliff areas on Wednesday 19 February 2020. It appears the vehicles were not locked, creating an opportunity for offenders to steal the property.

Police understand that at times leaving cars open can be accidental. They’re encouraging residents and visitors to the area to be vigilant and ensure valuables are always secured.

Police ask that if you notice any suspicious behaviour please report it to your local police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.
