Coronavirus: Third man arrested for alleged breach of Covid-19 travel restrictions | #coronavirus | #scams | #covid19


A third person has been arrested for allegedly driving in a truck bypass lane to pass a police checkpoint.

Assistant Commissioner Scott Fraser said the man was arrested on Wednesday after he ignored signage for all cars to use the left lane.

“The man was stopped by police 500m north of the checkpoint and was arrested for breaching his bail conditions as well as breaching the regional Alert Level 3 restrictions,” Fraser said.

On Monday, a 58-year-old man was charged with obstruction after he allegedly attempted to evade police by driving down the truck bypass lane at the Bombay checkpoint on State Highway 1, and on Thursday, a 32-year-old man was also charged for trying to see his partner in Waikato.

As the weekend approaches Fraser said Aucklanders were encouraged to stay local and adhere to alert level restrictions.

As at 4pm on Thursday, 125,800 cars had been stopped at checkpoints across Tāmaki Makaurau, and a total of 6174 cars had been turned around.

This roughly equated to one vehicle out of every 20 being turned away.

”Overall police are very pleased with the community response, with the vast majority of people following the rules, and only a small number of people not complying,” Fraser said.

The arrest came as police issued a further plea for Aucklanders to stay local and adhere to the alert level 3 restrictions.

Fraser said: “We encourage anyone to stay at home as much as possible and wear face masks when out in public.

“We also urge anyone feeling unwell over the weekend to stay at home and contact your GP or Healthline for further advice.”
