Police investigate liquor breach
INVESTIGATIONS are underway by Whitsunday police into three licensed premises in Airlie Beach that did not comply with the liquor licensing accord on Good Friday.
Whitsunday Police Station officer in charge acting senior sergeant Brad Teys is the liaison between the police and members of the liquor accord. He monitors and enforces liquor licensing provisions in the Whitsunday division.
Sgt Teys said police were notified by a person staying at one of the premises about the breach as the person was aware of Easter trade provisions in place.
The other two premises were noticed by police during their patrols that night.
“Police’s primary task on the night was to ensure local licensees were complying with the Easter trade provisions,” Sgt Teys said.
