Truckie Caught On Dukes Hwy With 2 Drugs In His System


Police are warning truck drivers that they will pull over rigs at random to ensure drivers are doing the right thing.

A 52 year old truckie was ordered not to drive for 24 hours after he tested positive to both methamphetamines and cannabis in a traffic stop on the Dukes Highway near Coomandook on Tuesday.

A search of the vehicle also turned up a small amount of cannabis, the driver has been fined for drug possession as well as for not correctly maintaining his work log and will likely face more charges when the forensic results of the drug tests are known.
