Charges laid after crackdown
LOCAL police arrested 13 people and laid 16 charges at the weekend as part of a state-wide crackdown on outstanding warrants.
Operation Avert 4 began at 6am on Friday and ended at midnight on Sunday. Across the Richmond Local Area Command, three people were also charged with breach of bail.
The 16 charges included break and enter, affray, malicious damage, assault occasioning actual bodily harm and traffic offences.
“These good results couldn’t have been achieved without the hard work of the officers involved in the operation and we will continue to work hard to make the community safe,” Richmond Superintendent Bruce Lyons said.
Local highway patrol officers also conducted 200 breath tests and charged four people.
