NSW Police issue new coronavirus fines and notices 15 May

In the past 24 hours, two people have been issued with Penalty Infringement Notices (PINs) under the Public Health Act 2010 (NSW) COVID-19.

Yesterday’s PINs:

  • About 2.45pm yesterday (Thursday 14 May 2020), officers attached to Eastern Beaches Police Area Command were patrolling Maroubra, when they stopped and spoke to a man at the intersection of Anzac Parade and Maroubra Road, who was drinking a can of Jim Beam in an alcohol-free zone. The man had previously been issued with a PIN at the same location three days earlier. He was given another $1000 infringement.
  • About 10am yesterday, officers from Leichhardt Traffic and Highway Patrol spoke with a man on The Crescent, Annandale. When it was determined the 38-year-old had already been warned three times in relation to breaches of the Public Health Act, he was issued with a PIN.

Anyone who has information regarding individuals or businesses in contravention of a COVID-19-related ministerial direction is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence.
