A MAN and women will face drug charges in Murgon Magistrates Court after police raided their property.

Traffic operation

FOUR people will front the Kingaroy Magistrates Court after they were allegedly caught drink driving.

Early this week police conducted a traffic operation in Kingaroy centred on enforcing road rules. They stopped over 500 drivers and charged a number of people with offences.

Police allege on Monday at 10.30am a 45-year-old Kingaroy woman tested positive to amphetamine while driving on Youngman St, and a 64-year-old man tested positive for a amphetamine while driving on Doonakuna St at 12pm.

They also allege a 21-year-old Kingaroy man was caught driving under the influence of cannabis on Alford St at 2.15pm, and a 40-year-old woman tested positive for amphetamine while driving along Kingaroy St at 2.30pm.

Police issued several infringement notices on Tuesday to people driving defective vehicles, unlicensed driving and speeding in a residential area.

One driver was charged with an unregistered trailer and another with an unregistered car.

Police reminded drivers of the fatal five - speeding, drink and drug driving, failure to wear a seatbelt and driving while fatigued.

"It frustrates me that some people aren't getting the message,” Senior Sergeant Duane Frank said.
