Man extradited back to Lismore after breaching parole

A MAN has been extradited from Queensland back to Lismore after breaching his parole.

Richmond Local Area Command officers brought the man back to the region yesterday after he was arrested at Brisbane airport on Wednesday.

The 35-year-old man had been charged with robbing an 84-year-old Lismore man and stealing an amount of cash in May last year.

He was sentenced by Lismore District Court to an 18 month custodial sentence, but after being released on parole this month, the 35-year-old moved to Brisbane, allegedly breaching his parole.

Following his extradition, the man has been taken into custody by NSW Corrective Services and will now serve the remainder of his sentence - a further five months.
