Passenger pleaded with dad not to drive

A TIERI man is suspected to have been driving drunk with his protesting 10-year-old daughter in the vehicle on Remembrance Day.

Officer-in-charge Senior Constable Duane Killick said a preliminary roadside test indicated the 43-year-old driver was three times the legal alcohol limit when the car was intercepted for an RBT.

Snr Const Killick said the child had tried to tell her father he should not have been driving, but he didn't listen.

"It is a sad day when a 10-year-old can make better choices than their parent," he said.

Snr Const Killick said blood test result will determine what charges are to be laid.

Tieri police are also asking homeowners to be vigilant with security after dealing with 22 dishonesty offences in the past year, including break and enter and stealing offences and property damage.

"Police need the community to ensure their property is not seen as an easy target for thieves," Snr Const Killick said.

"Police are also seeking information about recent break and enters in Tieri where credit cards and drivers' licences have been stolen and used to commit internet fraud."

Anyone with information can call Tieri police on 4984 8233 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
