A 30-year- old Cairns North man was charged yesterday as a result of investigations into a number of thefts from CBD stores during April.

It will be alleged that the man and another male associate entered an optical business at a McLeod Street shopping centre on April 9 and each stole a number of pairs of sunglasses.

It will be further alleged that the man entered a CBD liquor store on April 28 and selected a bottle of spirits before leaving the store without paying.

Cairns Property Crime Squad officers located the man at a Pease Street address just before midday yesterday and he was taken into custody.

He was charged with two counts of stealing and is expected to appear in the Cairns Magistrates Court later this morning.

His male associate, a 48-year- old Earlville man, was previously charged on April 26 in relation to the alleged sunglasses theft.
