Family duo nabbed

Another man in his late 30s has been spoken to regarding driving an unregistered car without a drivers licence and while over the alcohol limit after giving a evidentiary breath test of 0.113 per cent.

He was intercepted in Plain Rd, Nagambie, about 11pm on October 31, with his teenage daughter who was driving another unregistered car in the same incident. She will receive a caution. The father alleged he was teaching his daughter to drive.

Pee Wee and TV stolen

Break in and damage

Broadford police are investigating a break in at a shed in Govett St some time during October 29. Property stolen included a McCulloch ride-on mower, a CIG Welder, whipper snipper and other sundry tools.
