Pair wanted over alleged car thefts arrested at Gold Coast hotel

TWO men who have been wanted on NSW warrants have been arrested at a hotel on the Gold Coast.

The pair, aged 26 and 29, were taken into custody along with two other people at a Mermaid Beach hotel on Friday.

Police say it comes following investigations into the theft of motor vehicles and fraud offences in the Tweed Heads region since December.


“A number of the stolen vehicles were involved in pursuits with police during this time,” NSW police said.

“In another incident, officers were involved in a struggle with a man in Kingscliff on 14 January. After sighting a firearm in his vehicle and attempting to retrieve it, the driver fled, striking a senior constable.”

The men appeared in the Southport Magistrates Court on Saturday, where NSW Police applied for their extradition back over the border.
