POLICE BRIEFS: Seven people charged with drug driving

LAST week the Kingaroy police performed 256 roadside breath tests and had seven positive samples to a roadside drug test.

All of the seven people who tested positive will all appear in court charged with driving while the relevant drug was present in the blood or saliva and one of them for possessing utensils or pipes that had been used.

The police also charged a 47-year-old Murgon woman for driving a motor vehicle without a driver licence on the Bunya Highway on June 18 at 6pm.

Last Wednesday a 45-year old Kingaroy woman was intercepted and charged for offences involving driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle on Markwell St at 11.45am.

The police are still investigating to find a Holden sedan after they were patrolling Kingaroy Cooyar Rd at 11.15pm on June 20 and pursed the car travelling south.

The vehicle increased its speed and pulled away to eventually evade the police.

On Saturday, June 22 a traffic infringement notice was handed down to a 22-year-old Wondai woman whose licence had expired a week previously.

She was driving down Alford Stwhen the Kingaroy Police intercepted her car at 9.45pm.
