Aggressive behaviour leads to fines

A Boonah man, 48, was issued a number of infringement notices for causing a public nuisance and obstructing police, on Saturday. 

Police were conducting a static RBT site in Boonah, when the man approached them in an aggressive manner, swearing and shouting loudly. 

The man was highly intoxicated, and his behaviour caused members of the public to feel threatened. 

Police were forced to abandon their RBT site and deal with the situation.  

Search and rescue on Mt Greville

An extensive search and rescue operation under dangerous conditions, located a hiker who was lost on Mt Greville, on Friday night.
