ON THE BEAT: with Gloucester Police

Teen arrested on outstanding warrant

A STOCKTON teen has been arrested and charged on an outstanding warrant after an assault at a residence in Barrington. 

The 17-year-old was arrested on December 31 and charged with an assault after an incident at a home two months earlier.

Following the assault the teen fled the home and could not be located by police, resulting in a warrant being issued for his arrest. The teen is due back in court in March.  

Wanted after assault

POLICE are still searching for a man who allegedly assaulted a duty manager at the Woolworths supermarket last month.

Police alleged a 24-year-old man pushed the duty manager after a disagreement inside the store on January 19. 

CCTV footage has been seized by police but officers have failed to locate the accused. Police believe he has possibly left Gloucester and is now in the Forster area.   

Drink driver charged

A GLOUCESTER woman has been charged with low-range drink driving. 

The 38-year-old was stopped by police on Dawson Crescent about 7.30pm on January 10 for a random breath test and later returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.078. 

She will appear in court later this month.

Speaking on phone

A GLOUCESTER man has been fined for speaking on his mobile phone while driving.

The 38-year-old was stopped by police about 5.50pm on January 10 after he was seen talking on the phone while driving east along Philip St. 

The man was issued with an on-the-spot fine.
