Logan women accused of border fraud hit with fresh charges from NSW

The two Logan women accused of lying about their travels to Melbourne last year have now been hit with fresh charges in New South Wales.

The 21 and 20-year-old are accused of lying on their border passes when they returned to the Sunshine State from Melbourne in July.

The pair were initially charged by Queensland authorities with fraud and providing false documents along with a third woman who travelled with them.

They’ve now received charges from New South Wales, after travelling through Sydney to get back into Queensland and allegedly lying on their border passes.

Police allege the pair provided misleading documents and gave false details when they travelled through Sydney to avoid restrictions.

They’ll front NSW courts later this year, and remain before Brisbane Court on Queensland charges.
