Three men, two aged 19 and a 20-year-old, will appear in court later this month after being charged with the theft of milk products in Grafton.
Police located the men following an appeal to the local community for information.
Between August 2017 and September 2017, Coffs/Clarence Local Area Command police were investigating the large scale theft of milk products from a Dobie Street premises in Grafton.
Flavoured milk and assorted dairy products were regularly stolen; a NSW Police media release states.
Investigators believed, due to the quantities of products being regularly taken that the items were being sold or distributed throughout the area.
Police will allege that three men used bolt cutters to cut locks from refrigerator doors on at least three occasions during August and September.
“The damaged occasioned to the locks required the doors to be replaced,” the media release states.
The men were charged with aggravated, break enter and steal in company at Grafton Police Station on Wednesday October 11.
They were granted bail to appear at Grafton Local Court on Monday October 23, 2017.
