Police Tape

A 19-year-old Tweed Heads South man faces a string of charges related to car theft on the Northern Rivers.

Police say the accused man, along with accomplices, entered an occupied home in North Point Ave, Kingscliff on the 29th of April, stealing a number of items including car keys.

The keys were for a blue Mercedes AMG which police say the group also stole before driving at 200 kilometres per hour and crashing it into another car in the Tugun Tunnel around 4am on Friday 30 April.

Officers say neither the driver nor two other men in the car at the time stopped to help the injured driver of the other car in the crash.

They’ve charged the 19-year-old with a range of offences relating to this incident as well as other stolen car and property offences committed in the Kingscliff and Casuarina area in the past three weeks and an outstanding warrant.
