A pub in South Australia’s south-east that allegedly flouted coronavirus restrictions to serve drinks in its front bar has been fined $5,060.
- Customers were allegedly drinking alcohol at the pub on Tuesday
- The pub licensee was fined $5,060 and individuals were fined $1,060
- Earlier on the same day, 16 intoxicated people were fined in Port Augusta
Police attended the pub just before 10:00pm on Tuesday night to find the front doors open with the licensee and four customers allegedly consuming alcohol.
The customers were issued on-the-spot fines of $1,060 each.
On the same day, police issued on-the-spot fines of $1,060 to 16 intoxicated people at a rowdy house party in Port Augusta.
Police had been tipped off by residents who complained about a large gathering and excessive noise about 12:30pm.
Woman arrested for multiple breaches of directions
Officers have also arrested a 26-year-old Adelaide woman who allegedly breached COVID-19 directions multiple times.
Police allege she left Adelaide last month when she was required to self-quarantine.
Upon returning to Adelaide yesterday, she was issued with a spot fine for the earlier breach of direction, and was issued a fresh direction to self-quarantine at her nominated address.
However, when officers attended that northern suburbs address later in the day, they allege the woman was not there.
They said they subsequently found her at another northern suburbs address.
They will further allege she had attended another eastern suburbs address prior to arriving at her home.
The woman has been charged with three counts of failing to comply with a direction and has been bailed to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court in October.
