Two men have been charged over an alleged vehicle theft at Tweed Heads earlier this week.

About 6.40pm on Monday (1 June, 2020), two men – aged 21 and 25 both from Pimpama – were attempting to enter a Mazda 6 sedan on Wharf Street, Tweed Heads, when they were approached by two 25-year-old men who are known to them.

Police will allege a verbal altercation occurred between the two groups, before one of the 25-year-old men assaulted both Pimpama men and demanded the keys to the vehicle.

The 21 and 25-year-old men fled on foot to a nearby business and contacted police.

The other men drove away in the Mazda.

Officers from Tweed/Byron Police District attended and commenced investigations.

As part of their inquiries, a 25-year-old Kingscliff man attended Tweed Heads Police Station about 11am on Tuesday (2 June, 2020) where he was arrested and charged with robbery in company.

He was refused bail and appeared at Lismore Local Court yesterday (Wednesday 3, June, 2020).

Police later located and seized the Mazda.

Following further inquiries, local police – with the assistance of the Police Dog Unit – attended a home on Horseshoe Road, Terranora, and arrested a second 25-year-old man about 3pm yesterday (Wednesday, 3 June, 2020).

He was taken to Tweed Heads Police Station and charged with robbery in company. He was refused bail to appear at Lismore Local Court today (Thursday, 4 June, 2020).

Both men were formally refused bail at court to re-appear at Tweed Heads Local Court on Wednesday, 19 August, 2020.
