Police prove relentless in blitz for road safety

POLICE have continued their campaign on the roads this week with the traffic branch out in force.

Three drink drivers were intercepted in Warwick alone, due to the police crackdown.

An 18-year-old male driver blew a reading of .156 when pulled over along Dragon St at 2.30am on Saturday.

The driver was a Warwick man on his provisional licence.

A 21-year-old female was intercepted by police along Boronia Dr at 5am on Sunday.

The individual from out of town had a reading of .136.

Items of value were taken from an unoccupied Albion St property which adjoined a church.

Officers believe the break- in occurred between 9.30am and 12.30pm on Friday.

In Stanthorpe, police attended the business premises of Crisps Coaches in Davadi St after a disturbance from two male persons about 1am.

While one juvenile offender left the scene before police arrived, a 26-year-old Glen Aplin male was detained and transported to Stanthorpe Police Station where he was charged with multiple offences.

These charges relate to events reported over recent months where fuel was stolen.

Police attended the carpark of the Stanthorpe Hotel on Wednesday evening where a 20-year-old tourist was caught in possession of cannabis.

Drug diversion was received by the male offender.

A quantity of cannabis was also revealed in the vehicle of a 21-year-old tourist who tested for an alcohol level of .093%.

Acting Senior Sergent Lisa Self urges drivers to remember to take a break every two hours while travelling this holiday season.

"Cars will always come off second best against a heavy vehicle, whether you're right or wrong," she said.

"Remember the fatal five, especially fatigue".
