Cases to answer


A MT ELIZA man pulled over by police during an automated number plate recognition operation in Cranbourne Road, Frankston, last week, allegedly tested positive to methyl-amphetamine.

The 41-year-old, who was already disqualified from driving due to a previous drug-driving offence, had his car impounded for 30 days at a cost of $1042.

He will receive a summons to attend court at a later date.

Sergeant Matthew Nott, of the state highway patrol said: “We make no apologies for taking people’s cars when they make the conscious decision to drive when they don’t have a licence.

“This is not a game, and people need to learn that no licence means no driving: it’s as simple as that.”
