Operation Drink Drive 2
A statewide crackdown at the weekend saw Junee police conduct 291 random vehicle stops.
The operation between Friday and Sunday resulted in four infringements of varying severity. One was issued after the occupants failed to wear appropriate seat belt restraints.
Another was given to a young driver who failed to display their P-plates correctly.
At about 7:15 on Saturday night, a 55-year-old Junee man was also found to be driving on Broadway Street, with a high range blood alcohol level.
He will appear before Junee Local Court on December 21.
Car hits fence
A 35-year-old man has been charged with negligent driving, failure to wear a seat belt, and driving an unregistered vehicle following a crash on Sunday night.
Just after 7pm, the man lost control of his vehicle before hitting a fence on Regent Street.
Police are currently investigating a reported break and entry at the Marinna RFS.
It is understood some of the station’s response equipment was stolen during the unlawful entrance, which likely occurred overnight on November 2.
“This is a volunteer organisation that does important work in the community,” said Junee Inspector Rob Vergano.
“The equipment on the premise is used to respond in emergency situations and any loss of this equipment may hinder their ability to save a home or a life.”
Search and seizure
The Rural Crime Prevention team carried out a search warrant on October 31 that uncovered an allegedly stolen luxury vehicle and livestock.
A hundred sheep, believed to have been stolen, were located on the Mees Lane property near Wantiool.
The uncovered car was reported missing upwards of two years ago.
