Man accused of drug driving twice in two hours

A RUN-IN with police did not stop a 35-year-old man from allegedly committing the same offence twice in two hours in Warwick yesterday.

The Leyburn man was allegedly caught drug driving on Grafton St about 12.40pm.

Warwick Police Senior Constable Gavin McLucas said the man was then nabbed drug driving in the same vehicle on Wallace St about 2.35pm.

After the man allegedly returned his first positive reading, he was charged with drug driving and his license was suspended for 24 hours.

Snr-Constable McLucas said as well as being charged with drug driving again the second time he was pulled up, he was also charged with unlicensed driving.

The man is scheduled to appear at Warwick Magistrates Court on October 31.
