Senior Kingaroy man caught driving on meth
A MAN and women will face drug charges in Murgon Magistrates Court after police raided their property. Police executed a search warrant at 7.25am on Monday, September 12, and found cannabis and utensils allegedly belonging to a 39-year-old man and 40-year-old woman. They face court on September 27.
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.
