COVID-19 update: Additional PINs issued at the weekend

Further to the updates sent over the weekend, NSW Police have issued three individuals with Penalty Infringement Notices (PINs) for not complying with Public Health Orders.

  • About 1.50pm on Saturday (12 September 2020), officers patrolling Central Railway Station stopped a 26-year-old man after he allegedly walked into a restricted area without processing a ticket. Checks revealed the man was denied entry into New South Wales from Victoria on two separate occasions last month. He was unable to produce a permit and was issued with a $1000 PIN.
  • About 5pm on Friday (11 September 2020), a 38-year-old man was stopped by police after attempting to enter New South Wales on the Sturt Highway. Police allege the man was unable to provide a permit and was directed to return to Victoria. He allegedly returned to the checkpoint about 2pm the following day (Saturday 12 September 2020) with a permit allowing him to enter via plane and undertake mandatory isolation in a Sydney hotel. He was again directed to return to Victoria. A short time later, the man was stopped for a third time and subsequently issued a $1000 PIN.
  • About 7.45pm on (Saturday 12 September 2020), police attended a home on Weber Crescent, Emerton, to conduct a check on a 20-year-old woman who had been ordered to self-isolate. Police will allege she had left the house to drove around the Rouse Hill and Riverstone areas earlier that day. The woman was reminded that she must isolate and was issued a $1000 PIN.
