Police say a mystery thief crashed a Holden ute into a Tweed house. PIC supplied.

Police say a house in Terranora is significantly damaged thanks to a mystery thief in a stolen car crashing into it over the weekend.

Officers say they received a report of a Holden ute with personalised NSW rego plates of ‘TAYLEX’ stolen from Terranor around 11am Friday.

They say they were called to an address in Parkes Lane, Terranora, the following day around 12pm, where they found they ute had crashed into a house.

None of the neighbours reported hearing anything unusual and it’s unclear when the crash happened.

The house had to be declared safe by engineers before the ute, also damaged, was towed away around 3.30 Saturday afternoon.

Police say investigations are continuing and anyone with information can contact Tweed Heads Police or Crime Stoppers.
