Woman watches on CCTV as man breaks into her home

A man has been arrested after he allegedly threatened to set a woman's house on fire when she told him she had caught him breaking in on CCTV.

Kyogle and Woodenbong police will allege on Friday afternoon a woman carried out a live CCTV check on her property and saw a man inside her house.

"Police were called and could not find the offender," Richmond Police District posted on its Facebook page.

"A check on another nearby house revealed that it too had been broken into.

"The victim then saw the offender, a 26-year-old Queensland man on the road and told him that he had been caught on CCTV; the 26-year-old then threatened to burn her house down."
