Police have charged a man following investigations into the theft of items from shops at a Sunshine Coast Plaza yesterday.
At about 11.15am, police were notified by security officers at the Horton Parade Plaza that they were running after a man who had allegedly stolen a quantity of items from shops.

The security officers and employees from the shops chased the man out of the shopping complex where the man was allegedly seen to try to enter a stopped vehicle.

Fortunately, the female driver of this vehicle had locked the doors preventing entry to the car.

The foot chase of the alleged offender continued until another member of the public, who had seen the chase occurring, intervened by offering the man a lift.

When the man entered the vehicle he was then restrained until the arrival of security and a short time later by police.

A 28-year-old man was arrested and charged with numerous fraud and theft offences as well as the attempted unlawful use of a motor vehicle and driving while disqualified.

He is due to appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court today.

Police would like to thank the members of the public who assisted during this arrest but would also like to remind our community that there are always risks involved when assisting, particularly if the situation becomes physical.

The community should keep in mind the option to contact Triple Zero (000) and provide information on the location of suspects.

If you have information for police, contact Policelink on 131 444 or provide information using the online form 24hrs per day.

You can report information about crime anonymously to Crime Stoppers, a registered charity and community volunteer organisation, by calling 1800 333 000 or via 24hrs per day.
