Three to Face Court after Moonta Traffic Stop


Three people have been arrested after a traffic stop in Moonta this afternoon.


Police will allege that about 10.50am, a car with three occupants was stopped on Crutchett Road.

Further enquiries led police to search a house on the same road.

The driver of the car, a 30-year-old Wallaroo man was reported for drug driving and driving while disqualified.

His car was impounded and he will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date.

A passenger in the car, a 24-year-old Wallaroo man was arrested for two counts of property damage, misuse of a motor vehicle and driving unlicenced, after checks revealed he was wanted for these offences.

His bail was refused and he will appear in court on Monday.

Another passenger, a 27-year-old North Beach woman was arrested for theft of a microwave oven.

The oven was located by police and will be returned to the owner.

She was also issued with a drug diversion notice for possession of methamphetamine and an expiation notice for possession of cannabis.
