Eventful period for police

HUNTER Valley Police District was kept busy in the Muswellbrook area last week.

On Sunday, June 28, officers stopped a 33-year-old male in Tarakan Avenue.

The driver was submitted to a roadside breath test, which he failed.

The man was then taken to Muswellbrook Police Station where his breath analysis returned a reading in the middle range of prescribed concentration of alcohol.

He was issued with a driver's licence suspension notice and given a Court Attendance Notice (CAN) to appear at Muswellbrook Local Court later in the year.

Officers were also called to Foley Street on Tuesday, June 30, at about 9.45pm.

A resident told them they saw their sensor light come on, at the front of their home, and noticed a person trying to look through the glass panels in the door.

A check around the house and a patrol was done in the vicinity but no one was seen.

If anyone witnesses suspicious activity in their area, contact Muswellbrook Police Station on 6542 6999.

On Thursday, July 2, officers stopped a black Holden sedan in Hunter Street.

After speaking with the driver and a passenger, police located some cannabis leaf and a quantity of white pills.

At the time, the driver, a 45-year-old female, was uncooperative and hindered police.

Inquiries are continuing into this matter.
