After an investigation by police from Lake Macquarie Local Area Command, a 42-year-old man was arrested yesterday today. .
He has been charged with
• Stealing from a dwelling
• Stealing from a retail store (two counts)
• Fraud, and
• Driving with an obscured number plate.
The man was granted conditional bail and will appear in Belmont Local Court on Wednesday 25 May 2016.
