TWO backpackers who reportedly stole baskets full of groceries have been tracked down and charged.
A supermarket manager phoned police to inform them about the alleged theft after the pair left Woolworths. The man and woman walked out of the store together and got in a van allegedly used in previous thefts. Police identified the suspects and arrested them at work. They were charged and scheduled to appear in Stanthorpe Magistrates Court for this and other matters.
