Officers on hop with offenders over weekend

POLICE across the region have been kept busy over the past week, with everything from teenage parties to lewd behaviour in public.

At about 5pm last Thursday, a 50-year-old Warwick man was arrested for indecency in Jackie Howe Park.

An off-duty police officer noticed the man behaving suspiciously while talking on his phone. He was charged with performing indecent acts in public and will appear in court later this month.

On Friday afternoon police officers carried out a drug raid in the Rose City, which led to the arrest of a 35-year-old man.

He was charged with possessing marijuana and drug utensils and will face court at a later date.

In another drug-related incident, an 18-year-old woman was ordered to undergo drug counselling after she was found in possession of a drug utensil at the weekend.

Police found the item on the Warwick woman while she was walking in Albert St on Saturday night.

A Warwick teenager has been charged with break and entry after the theft of electrical goods from a Locke St residence.

The 18-year-old allegedly forced his way into the home last Friday evening before getting away with a number of items.

The property had not been recovered, but the man was expected to face the magistrate next month.

Officers allegedly found property related to a break-in and an 18-year-old man was charged with possessing tainted property.

Snr Sgt Day said a large number of teenagers were also in possession of alcohol and were dealt with under the Juvenile Justice Act.

"Police are urging parents to make sure they know where their teenage children are on the weekends and ensure they are supervised," he said.
