Charges follow car check


A WOMAN seen by police walking near a grey Audi sedan at a Rosebud service station was later found to have a string of outstanding warrants against her name.

The 28-year-old, of no fixed address, allegedly claimed to own the car when she was approached at the Nepean Highway service station, Monday 23 March.

Sergeant Brendan Leihy, of Rosebud police, said a registration check listed the car as stolen, and a personal ID check found the woman was wanted on six outstanding matters.

A search of the Audi allegedly found 4.8 grams of the drug ice and $660 cash.

The woman was later charged with a range of previous and current matters, including theft, four counts of obtaining property by deception, four counts of theft of a motor car, threat to inflict serious injury, making and using a false document (cheque), trafficking and possessing a drug of dependence, and handling stolen goods.

After appearing at Dromana Magistrates’ Court she was further remanded to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court, 7 April.
