Nowhere to hide

SHEL­LEY Lyn­ley Craugh­well may have avoided an RBT site but po­lice caught up with her in the end.

Po­lice were con­duct­ing tests on Shute Har­bour Rd, Ju­bilee Pocket at 9.25am on June 22, when they saw a blue Holden ap­proach the site, pull off to the shoul­der “and then quickly turn into Plan­ta­tion Drive,” prose­cu­tor Bern­hard Berger said.

Po­lice caught up with Craugh­well parked in the cul-de-sac, but she told them she was wait­ing for a friend.

When po­lice chal­lenged her story, say­ing she’d been seen avoid­ing the in­ter­cep­tion site, she replied by say­ing, “yeah, right, do what you have to do”.

She then ad­mit­ted drink­ing

cans of Vic­to­ria Bit­ter at about 3.30pm on the pre­vi­ous day, be­fore “self-poured vodka and soda wa­ter”. Her breath al­co­hol level was 0.116.

Craugh­well pleaded guilty to driv­ing over the mid­dle al­co­hol limit and was fined $650 and dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for five months.
