TWO MEN were issued $300 fines by police after they stole a tray of Red Bull energy drinks from a Lismore service station in the early hours of this morning.

Police allege at about 1.10am the two men, aged 18 and 23, entered the rear of the Woodlark Street service station and picked up a tray of 24 cans and left without paying for them.

A security officer witnessed the theft and stopped the two men at the rear of a hotel on Keen St in Lismore.

The 18-year-old stayed with security and the 23-year-old ran off into the hotel.

Police attended and spoke with the 18-year-old before attending a room in the hotel where the second man was found, along with the cans of Red Bull.

The drinks were returned to the service station and the two men were issued with criminal infringement notices.
