Six times the limit


A MORNINGTON man had an expensive trip to the shops, early Wednesday 14 October.

The 31-year-old pulled over at 2.50am in Rosebud told police he was on his way to buy cigarettes. A preliminary breath test indicated alcohol on his breath. He was taken to Rosebud police station where he returned a reading of 0.316 per cent.

The man will be summonsed to appear at Dromana Magistrates’ Court at a later date. His car was impounded at a cost of $1145 and he was issued a $1652 infringement notice for breaching the Chief Health Officer’s directions.
