Motorist nabbed in Mornington


A 29-year-old Epping man has lost his car for a month after he was allegedly caught doing a burn out by police in Mornington yesterday morning.

Frankston Highway Patrol detected a group of motorcycles and a black Commodore sedan driving along Main Street in a convoy about 10.20am Sunday 22 November.

All riders and the driver were displaying Comancheros Outlaw Motorcycle Gang colours.

It is believed the group stopped at the Esplanade to give way to traffic, and as they moved off, the Commodore allegedly did a burn-out, fish tailed, lost traction and went through a pedestrian crossing and intersection.

Police later located the vehicle at a service station in Dromana.

The Epping man is expected to be charged on summons with improper use of a motor vehicle, drive in a manner dangerous, conduct endearing persons, careless driving and drug driving.

He also had his vehicle impounded for 30 days under hoon legislation – costing him $1081 to have it towed.
