A “quiet weekend” was interrupted by a break and enter and an allegedly drunk driver, according to MIA police.
A Griffith man is set to face local court, charged with high-range drink driving, after a roadside breath analysis allegedly yielded a positive result.
The 52-year-old man was taken to the station, where another test revealed a blood-alcohol reading of 0.0919, according to officers.
“That is high high-range,” Inspector Traynor said. “He had his license suspended, to appear at local court.”
It comes ahead of the second run of Operation Compliance, with NSW Police targeting mobile phone use while driving, vehicle standards.
Officers are also investigating the theft of a red air compressor at a rural property at Lake Wyangan.
Inspector Traynor said the item disappeared from a Mallinson Road shed, sometime between Thursday, July 5 and Monday, July 9.
“We don’t have a high rate of that sort of rural crime here,” Inspector Traynor said.
“But it is always a concern.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
