Southside hoons fined as leaders drive home messaging

Police have issued public health order fines to members of a group allegedly doing burnouts in a south-east Queensland industrial area, as authorities pleaded for people to stay in their homes over the Easter period.

The infringements came as the state recorded 13 new COVID-19 cases, for a total of 965. Health authorities say 368 of these had now recovered.

A total of 18 fines, worth $1334 each, were handed to members of the “noisy gathering” after police were called to a vacant car park on Loganholme’s Josephine Street about 11pm Thursday.

“The road was cordoned off and police took up with at least ten cars that had been performing burnouts,” police said in a statement.
