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.
