Interstate stowaways arrested, South Australia

Four men were arrested this morning after allegedly stowing away on an interstate freight train.

About 9.30 am on Tuesday 14 July, police were notified that four stowaways had been seen onboard an Adelaide inbound interstate freight train which was en-route to Perth.

The train had departed Melbourne at 10.30 pm last night heading toward Perth. It stopped at the Adelaide Freight Terminal at Regency Park this morning where the men were located.

Patrols swooped on the train yard with Police Dogs Axe and Zac and quickly located the four suspects.

The four men, aged 22, 26, 29 and 29, all of no fixed address but believed from Victoria, were arrested and charged with breaching COVID directions.

They have been refused police bail and are expected to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court tomorrow.
