Drug tests negative
ROADSIDE drug testing units stopped 18 vehicles in Mundubbera but found Easter drivers were on their best behaviour.
Police performed six random drug tests and 12 random alcohol tests for nil positive outcomes.
Local police from Eidsvold and Mundubbera joined with the special Drug Testing Unit to assist with the action.
This was part of an operation targeting the Fatal Five and general safety by police over the Easter break, which will continue until school starts again.
Sergeant Shaughan Lanham, of Mundubbera Police, said the recent roadside drug testing in town was a positive for the community, with no one testing positive to drugs or alcohol.
“Crews would be back in the area unannounced at any time,” Sgt Lanham said.
“The ability to test people on the spot is just another measure we can take to protect the public and stop someone who would do the wrong thing.”
Senior Constable Cam Mosley said it was good for the drug testing unit to make stops in towns unannounced.
“The unit will be stopping in more often at a moment’s notice,” Snr Cnst Mosley said.
“It will be good to have this facility in town to assist us with our job.”
