Po­lice were called to Ben­z­ley around 8.30pm on May 12 on Shute Har­bour Rd, Can­non­vale, af­ter re­ports of some­one fol­low­ing her.

Af­ter telling po­lice she hadn't called them and was fine, po­lice of­fered her a lift and she con­sented to a search be­fore get­ting in their car. She then pro­duced both a knife and ba­ton that she said be­longed to her fa­ther who had re­cently passed away.

The 43-year-old from Can­non­vale was fined $400 but had no con­vic­tion recorded.
