Smashed up ute leads to charges over Killarney sign rampage

POLICE have uncovered a badly damaged Holden ute they say was used to mow down street signs in Killarney during a destructive rampage.

A Warwick man has been ordered to front court, charged with destroying signs along Ivy St and Warwick-Killarney Rd between late Saturday evening and early Sunday morning last week.  

Killarney police Sergeant Brad Doyle said the 33-year-old man's ute was "extensively damaged" when police located him

"The car was extensively damaged when we located him," he said.

He is due to appear in Warwick Magistrates Court on August 28 on charges of wilful damage and failing to comply with the duties of a driver in a crash.
