Man accused of attempting to bribe police at the border

A man has been charged after he allegedly attempted to bribe a police officer at the NSW-Victoria border.

Just before 2pm on Friday, a vehicle was stopped by NSW Police at the Barmah Bridge checkpoint.

Officers spoke with the driver, a 66-year-old man, and requested his border permit to enter NSW.


“Police will allege in court that the man could not provide a valid permit and instead offered an envelope with $1000 to the officer,” NSW police said in a statement.

The Victorian man was arrested and taken to Deniliquin Police Station, where he was charged with give/offer bribe to member of NSW Police.

He was granted strict conditional bail and is due to appear before Moama Local Court on Wednesday 4 November.
