Too much Temp­ta­tion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS -

The po­lice ar­rived and had to use two cans of cap­sicum spray to sub­due the 23-year-old and 22-year-old Moss­man lo­cals.

The of­fend­ers had al­legedly been drink­ing and were in pos­ses­sion of cask wine, ac­cord­ing to po­lice, when they con­tin­ued to throw pot plants at the win­dows and doors af­ter the owner and wit­ness shut the doors.

Both men have been charged with a range of of­fences in­clud­ing ob­struct po­lice, as­sault po­lice, com­mon as­sault, wil­ful dam­age and pub­lic nui­sance.

Po­lice say it was for­tu­nate that the glass win­dows and doors did not smash and are seek­ing wit­nesses to the in­ci­dent to con­tact them on 4098 2177 or Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000.

“In par­tic­u­lar, a wit­ness who we be­lieve is a con­trac­tor and had been at the Junc­tion Café and came over, how­ever, left be­fore po­lice could get his par­tic­u­lars,” Moss­man Of­fi­cer-in-Charge Sergeant Ed Lukin said.

The al­leged of­fend­ers have been re­manded in cus­tody un­til they face the Cairns Mag­is­trates Court on Novem­ber 29.
