Police say the offences are alleged to have occurred at homes in the Tallai, Bonogin, Tallebudgera & Mudgeeraba areas earlier this year.

After their arrests, NSW detectives searched the couple’s Casuarina Beach home seizing large amounts of stolen property, which is currently being identified and returned to the victims.

The pair have both been remanded in custody. The woman is due to face Southport Magistrates Court on July 20 while the man is due to appear in the same court on July 25.
