A Griffith man has been arrested and charged with stealing offences and resisting a police officer, during police patrols of an area recently targeted with break and enters and thefts from cars.
Murrumbidgee Police District's Proactive Crime Team made the arrest on Gibbs Street at 1.20am on Sunday, after seeing the 22-year-old man walking down the street in gloves.
When asked what he was doing and why he was wearing the gloves, he allegedly told police it was because he was cold, and he was going to a mate's place in Driver.
He was searched, where police found a drivers license that wasn't his, as well as other items believed to have been stolen.
The officers were patrolling the area near Probert Avenue after a recent string of thefts from cars, as well as break and enters.
The man was arrested and charged with larceny, two counts of possessing stolen items, as well as resisting a police officer in the execution of their duty.
He is set to face Griffith Local Court on the February 12, 2020.
