A MAN has been ar­rested af­ter he al­legedly as­saulted po­lice over a steal­ing in­ci­dent in Lis­more. Po­lice from the Rich­mond Tar­get Ac­tion Group were called to the Lis­more Sal­va­tion Army store at 4.30pm on Fri­day to in­ves­ti­gate a steal­ing of­fence. While talk­ing to staff they saw a 37-year-old North Lis­more man walk­ing past the store. Staff pointed him out as the of­fender and po­lice spoke to him.

Dur­ing a search of him po­lice re­cov­ered prop­erty al­legedly stolen ear­lier from the Sal­va­tion Army store. The man was charged with lar­ceny and as­sault­ing po­lice.
