Cops crackdown on Noosa North Shore weekenders
Police have allegedly found illegal drugs in the vehicle of a 19-year-old driver on Noosa North Shore during a targeted weekend crackdown.
Officer in charge Senior Sergeant Ben Carroll said Noosa Police conducted patrols of the open beaches north of the river "in response to a large swell of people and vehicles travelling Teewah Beach through to Double Island Point".
Sen-Sgt Carroll said officers conducted speed enforcement and random breath testing.
"A 19-year-old Buderim male was caught by police doing circle work on the open beach," he said.
"He was issued multiple infringement notices and a search of his vehicle further located dangerous drugs to which he is now undergoing a drug diversion.
"A 48-year-old Noosaville woman was issued a notice to appear for drink-driving."
Sen Sgt Carroll said speed compliance was good through the camping area as was compliance with permits and vehicle passes.
