Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

GAYNDAH po­lice have main­tained their strong pres­ence in and around the town, with the road­side drug test­ing van and gen­eral road­side stops back this week.

Gayndah Po­lice Sergeant Joshua Ryan said he wanted to re­mind the com­mu­nity that any un­law­ful be­hav­iour would not be tol­er­ated.

“I re­mind all peo­ple that if they en­gage in any un­law­ful ac­tiv­ity whether it is drugs, anti-so­cial be­hav­iour or traf­fic of­fences you will be lo­cated and pros­e­cuted to the full ex­tent of the law,” Sgt Ryan said.

Po­lice charged a 30-year-old man on Fri­day, May 27 with drug-re­lated of­fences and he is sched­uled to ap­pear in court at a later date.

“Gayndah Po­lice in­ter­cepted a 30-year-old male from Gympie in Cap­per St, Gayndah,” Sgt Ryan said.

“Dur­ing in­ter­ac­tion with this male he was lo­cated with a quan­tity of am­phet­a­mines (speed), cannabis, Val­ium and drug uten­sils and this male was is­sued a no­tice to ap­pear for Gayndah court on June 16.”

Sgt Ryan com­mends the peo­ple of Gayndah for their vig­i­lance and en­cour­ages oth­ers to fol­low suit.

“I ask all mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to con­tinue to pro­vide po­lice with in­for­ma­tion about any ac­tiv­ity they be­lieve is un­law­ful,” Sgt Ryan said this week.

“With their con­tin­ued sup­port po­lice will tar­get any crime that is oc­cur­ring.”
