A search of the man allegedly revealed car keys, a driver's licence and a credit card belonging to the owner of the first vehicle.

The man was also carrying three knives and tools allegedly used for breaking into homes.

The car key of the second vehicle, cash and cards were allegedly found on the woman.

Both were arrested and charged with aggravated break and enter and goods in custody.

Other charges for the man included possession of a knife and prohibited drug.

Both will re-appear at Lismore Local Court on June 20.
