JESS OF THE WES T

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

MOUNT Isa Po­lice have been pre­par­ing for rodeo week cel­e­bra­tions but at least two of­fi­cers got slightly dis­tracted by an Aus­tralian pop star.

The Dar­win- born star was in town for a con­cert on Wed­nes­day night and po­lice were equally ex­cited to meet her. “Look who Mt Isa Po­lice bumped into ... Jes­sica Mauboy in town to help kick off the Mt Isa Rodeo fes­tiv­i­ties,” Queens­land Po­lice wrote on Face­book.

The free live con­cert was at­tended by at least 6000 Mount Isans and tourists at the Isa Street Fes­ti­val, with peo­ple tak­ing up ev­ery van­tage point.

Jes­sica said she was ex­cited to be in Mount Isa since her mum still lived there.

She took the time to talk to com­mu­nity mem­bers, who were keen to con­grat­u­late her on her suc­cess.
