A NSW woman has been slapped with a $4,135 fine after being caught trying to sneak into Queensland by hiding in the boot of a car carried by a tow truck.
The incident occurred last week. Police have just released body camera vision recorded of the arrest by an officer.
The 49-year-old woman was caught about 4pm on August 18 when police stopped the tow truck for inspection at the Goondiwindi border.
The boot of the sedan on the tow truck tray was searched and the woman was found hiding in the boot under blankets and clothing.
She had been denied entry to Queensland at the same border crossing in Goondiwindi on two previous occasions.
The woman was arrested, transported to Boggabilla in New South Wales and fined for failing to comply with a COVID-19 Border Direction.
