Munchies run ends in Maccas drive-thru arrest

A CASE of the muchies and a late night maccas-run has landed a woman in hot water police, say.

At midnight on Friday, it was alleged they saw a vehicle driving at high speed long Brewster Street in Lismore, before it turned into the drive-thru of McDonalds without indicating. Police stopped the vehicle in the drive-thru.

When police spoke to the driver, a 21-year-old Lismore woman, checks on her licence revealed she was a disqualified driver.

The car smelt strongly of cannabis; a search revealed 10 grams of cannabis, and the driver failed a roadside drug test. Further inquiries revealed that she was not displaying "P" Plates and she was not permitted to drive a manual car.

When asked why she was driving the 21-year-old allegedly said she was hungry and wanted some food.

At Lismore Police Station the 21-year-old failed a secondary drug test.

She was charged with driving whilst disqualified, possessing a prohibited drug, not displaying P plates, not complying with conditions of her licence and not indicating.

A further charge may be laid when the final results of the drug analysis are known.

She will appear in Lismore Local Court in May. #LismoreCrime
