Wanted man arrested at Qld border in stolen car with paper number plates

Police have been left gobsmacked after a wanted man tried to pass through a border check point in a stolen ute with paper number plates.

It’s understood the man was busted after he approached one of Queensland’s tough new check points on the Gold Coast Highway on Thursday afternoon.

Officers quickly discovered the man, who was travelling to Queensland from NSW, had a warrant out for his arrest.


If that wasn’t enough, a search of the stolen vehicle also allegedly uncovered drugs, cash and a gel blaster.

The man, whose age is not known, was taken into custody at the scene.

He’s currently assisting police with investigations.

The border restrictions, which apply to all travel to Queensland by air, sea, rail and road, officially came into place at midnight last night in a bid to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Anyone caught trying to cross the border into Queensland, without a legitimate reason, is being warned they could cop a fine of more than $13,000.

Get rid of him quickly. We don’t need garbage like this man around.

This guy seems to be a prime candidate for human trials of Darwin’s theory of evolution.
