Under the influence
DRIVING erratically drew police attention to a 29-year-old man who was remanded in custody on four charges.

The man was seen on Haly St, Kingaroy, at 7.30pm on Sunday.

Senior Sergeant Duane Frank said the driver appeared to be affected by drugs or alcohol and was taken to hospital for a blood sample to be taken.

By being out in his car at the time the man breached a condition of the bail order he was on, and he was driving without a licence.

He was also charged with the unlawful possession of suspected stolen property in relation to a guitar and bicycle.

The man's vehicle was impounded and he was scheduled to face court next week.

On your bike
A MAN caught riding a stolen bicycle down Haly St, Kingaroy, was arrested in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The 20-year-old Kingaroy man was later found to have a number of items taken during house break-ins.

He was charged and released.

Vandalism charges
A TEEN spotted behaving suspiciously at the corner of Youngman and King Sts, Kingaroy, was charged with possessing graffiti instruments.

The 17-year-old man was picked up about 9.30pm on Saturday night with a spray paint can.

After further inquiries police also charged the man with wilful damage relating to a flag pole damaged at Taste South Burnett in the last month.

The next day a 16-year-old boy was also dealt with in connection to damaging the flag pole.

Three car crash
A PILE-up on the D'Aguilar Hwy caused damage to three cars but no one was injured.

The 18-year-old driver of a vehicle heading south between Kingaroy and Nanango slowed to turn off the road at Pottique Lavender Farm.

The vehicle travelling behind her stopped, but a third car, driven by a 19-year-old Nanango man crashed into the back of the car in front.

The Nanango man's car sustained the most damage and had to be towed.

He was given a ticket for following too close.

Street racing
DRAG racing in the middle of Kingaroy left a 42-year-old man without his car.

Police impounded the 42-year-old man's older model Mitsubishi Lancer sedan for 90 days under hooning legislation.

The man was seen drag racing with another car in Haly St, Kingaroy about 8pm on Tuesday night.

He was charged with racing speed trials on a road.

The driver of the other vehicle racing through the street escaped police.

Public nuisance
A GROUP of youths have been dealt with under the youth justices act for causing a disturbance at Kingaroy Shoppingworld.

Police were called to the centre about 4pm where two girls and a boy were creating a public nuisance.
