Police respond to report of hoons at East Shores

POLICE have been called to investigate hooning inside the brand new East Shores precinct.

A concerned citizen called the police because they witnessed a Facebook post saying people were driving in the new development.

"If anyone would like to report it to the police or council, there are P-platers at the new waterfront driving their cars inside all over the road," the Facebook post said.

"(They are) jumping over fences to unfinished areas and probably ruining the one nice place Gladstone finally got."

Gladstone Police officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Jim Vogler said police had investigated the call, even though it wasn't from an eyewitness.

"The crew responded to the call in eight minutes (but) there were no cars driving on the precinct," he said.

"The crew noticed all the bollards were down.

"There were no other signs that people have been driving in the precinct and we haven't had any formal complaints."
