Police crack down on dangerous hooning activity on northern Gold Coast

A 19-year-old has been charged, after police cracked down on hooning activity in Pimpama recently.

Police had been keeping an eye on council land in the area, following complaints of frequent gatherings involving large crowds and dangerous activity.

On Sunday August 30, an operation was carried out, with Polair used to locate some of the individuals.


Police intervened when theY saw people with children near the ‘reckless and dangerous’ hooning activity.

Everyone was moved on from the site with warnings given, while one un-roadworthy vehicle was left at the site because it wasn’t fit to be driven.

Three people then allegedly returned to the area shortly after, and were issued infringement notices for trespassing.

A 19-year-old Parkwood man was charged with driving whilst unlicenced. He’ll front court on October 1.

Police are warning they will continue to monitor the area closely.
