A NSW woman fined $4,135 only last week over a brazen attempt to sneak into Queensland has been caught again, hiding out in a house in Warwick.
The 49-year-old was discovered hiding in the boot of a car on the back of a tow truck at the Goondiwindi police checkpoint on August 18.
She had already been turned away on two previous occasions and, on the third occasion, was fined after being caught stowed away under blankets and clothing in the trunk. Police released footage of her apprehension last tonight.
Today, a second police media release shows vision of police this morning raiding a home at Warwick, where the same woman was discovered having apparently snuck through to Queensland undetected.
“A subsequent search of the dwelling resulted in a 49-year-old woman being located barricaded in one of the bedrooms,” police said.
“She was arrested and transported back to Warwick Watchhouse and charged with Fail to comply with Covid-19 Public Health Direction and is due to appear in Warwick Magistrates Court today.”
