Northern Territory Police from Daly River Police Station conducted a traffic campaign in the Victoria Daly region on Thursday 18 June 2020.
Police checked a number of vehicles prior to coming across a black Holden Commodore sedan. As the vehicle approached, members could hear glass bottles being thrown from the vehicle.
Police searched the vehicle and located two one-litre bottles of alcohol and two 375ml cans of alcohol.
Members conducted a further search along the side of the road which located:
- 8 x 1 litre bottles of alcohol
- 4 x 700ml bottles of alcohol
Approximately 13 litres was seized and destroyed.
The 31-year-old male driver was issued with an infringement notice for bringing alcohol into an alcohol protected area.
Senior Sergeant Bradley Fox said, “This seizure is a good result, and it without a doubt reduces alcohol related harm in the community”.
