ACCORDING to officers from the Richmond Police District, a Sydney woman will always regret the time she visited Woodburn.

Police will allege at 3pm on Wednesday a 34-year-old Waterloo woman was driving through Woodburn when she was stopped by local police, a post on Richmond Police District Facebook reads.

She told police that she did not have a licence and then failed a roadside drug test for amphetamine.

Police then discovered that she had supplied them with a false name, and had a revocation of parole (straight to jail) warrant.

At Ballina checks revealed she is disqualified from driving until 2030.

She also failed her secondary drug test.

The woman has been charged for driving while disqualified and stating a false name.

A further charge may be laid pending the final result of her drug analysis.
