Suspected shoplifter arrested

POLICE have arrested a 26-year-old woman for shoplifting and for being in possession of goods thought to be stolen or unlawfully obtained.

At about 6pm last night in a Tweed Heads shopping centre, the Coffs Harbour woman came under notice of store security who detained her for suspected stealing.

Subsequent police investigations lead to an amount of property being located.

That property is believed to have been stolen and police have commenced legal action against the women.

Meanwhile a 31-year-old Murwillumbah woman was caught drink driving  last night and had her drivers licence suspended.

She was issued with a court attendance notice for high range prescription of alcohol (PCA).

Police located the women in Peri Street about 5:30pm yesterday and she will appear in Murwillumbah Local Court next month.
