Police allege the intruders then loaded up the 49-year-old man's white Holden Commodore sedan with items from the house and neighbouring business before leaving.

Following investigations by Strike Force Lynhale, Brandon Green, 21, Peter Graham, 26, and David Reynolds, 48, were arrested and charged in February this year.

Lismore Police Inspector Matt Kehoe said a fourth man was arrested at Glen Innes, on September 9.
