Woman, 50, caught in border breach

A 50-year-old woman has been issued with a border breach notice and is also facing a drink driving charge after she was caught by Police travelling from Tweed Heads in NSW to to Mackay in Queensland.

Queensland Police say that at around 9.30pm on Monday night, officers intercepted a vehicle on the Bucasia Esplanade in Bucasia for the purpose of a Roadside Breath Test (RBT).

Police allege the female driver started her car and attempted to drive away before police managed to stop her.

She then allegedly refused to comply with the requirements of the RBT and was arrested by police.

The 50-year-old woman was charged with two counts of failing to provide a specimen of breath and obstruct police and one count of driving under the influence of liquor.

She is due to appear in the Mackay Magistrates Court on September 15.

The woman was also issued with a PIN for breaching the Chief Health Officer’s Public Health Border Direction and is subject to mandatory quarantine conditions.
