Residents breaching public health orders fined by police

Updated: Nov 11, 2020


Police are continuing to crack down on residents who defy public health orders in the region. About 9am on Tuesday, officers from Oxley Police District stopped a vehicle on Henry Street, Werris Creek, and spoke with the 41-year-old driver. Checks revealed the man had been warned under the Public Health Act last week and was breaching his bail. Despite the previous warnings the man allegedly told police he thought "he'd be alright" this time. He was issued a Court Attendance Notice and a $1000 PIN for breach of COVID-19 direction. On Sunday, officers from Traffic and Highway Patrol Command stopped a vehicle on Duri Road, West Tamworth just after 2pm and spoke to the five occupants. The group told police they were hanging out and going for a drive. Subsequent checks revealed three of the five had been warned for doing the same thing on previous occasions. Police issued $1000 PINs to three men, aged 19, 21 and 24, while the other two individuals were given warnings under the Public Health Act.
