A woman has been charged over alleged thefts from local stores on the South Coast worth almost $15,000.

Investigations began after police received a tip off about a large number of items worth $14,000 being sold online.

Officers then executed a search warrant at a Grantham Road home in Batehaven at about 1 pm on Thursday (16 June).

During the search police allegedly found and seized several suspected stolen items.

As a result a 58-year-old woman, who had been assisting police with their inquiries, has been issued a Court Attendance Notice for one count of goods suspected stolen in/on premises (not motor vehicle).

The Batehaven woman was due to appear in court on Monday, 8 August.

Investigations into this matter were still ongoing.
