Browns Plains Police have recently charged a 20-year-old Jimboomba man after numerous alleged hooning incidents in the Browns Plains area over the weekend.
On July 5, multiple Boronia Heights residents assisted police by reporting a vehicle that had allegedly been conducting burnouts.
Multiple members of the community assisted police with their investigation by reporting sightings of the motor vehicle alleged to have been involved in the offence, leading police to be able to speak with the driver.
As a result, a 20-year-old Jimboomba man has been charged with wilfully making unnecessary noise or smoke and is due to appear at Beenleigh Magistrates Court on November 11.
The man’s vehicle was also subsequently towed away to be impounded.
Acting Sergeant Damien Jones of Browns Plains Division said that hooning reports will be investigated.
“When relevant information is supplied, police will investigate these incidents, and there is every possibility that your car will be towed,” Acting Sergeant Jones said.
The Browns Plains community have made it clear that they are not accepting of this type of driving behaviour and are willing to report these incidents to police who will investigate each report.
The Logan District is committed to addressing this type of driving behaviour and will take action upon an offence being detected to ensure our roads remain safe for all road users.
