So the latest from the boys in blue:
- 1. One unregistered boozer has allegedly been busted trying to run away from the police:
“About 3.50am, Belconnen general duties patrols attempted to stop the alleged offender’s vehicle on Southern Cross Drive, Latham after noticing it was not displaying a rear registration plate. The vehicle then accelerated away on Kingsford Smith Drive. The vehicle continued along Belconnen Way in Hawker and Weetangera before the driver lost control in the wet conditions on a roundabout in Higgins, resulting in a minor collision. The pursuit lasted a few minutes. The driver was arrested and conveyed to City Police Station where she returned an alleged positive breath test of 0.123.”
Even better the alleged perpetrator is a 26 year old woman and a pill was found on her person which is off to the lab. Take note children: When up to dodgy business try to look like you’re legit.
All up she’s facing charges of “drink driving, unlicensed driving, using an unregistered and uninsured vehicle, possession of a prohibited substance and failing to stop as directed.”
