THREE tradesmen who tried to enter Moama have been fined for breaching COVID-19 restrictions.   

The 30-year-old driver, and passengers, aged 26 and 28, attempted to enter NSW through the Moama checkpoint about 9.40am on Tuesday, September 15.

However, they were unable to produce a valid permit and directed to return to Victoria.

A short time later, the men returned to the checkpoint and produced a permit, which only allowed entry via air travel.

About 1pm the same day, the men attempted to enter at the Hume Hwy checkpoint.

They told police they crossed into Victoria in error and attempted to re-enter.

Checks revealed the men entered Victoria at 6am and the driver was issued an infringement notice for failing to provide/give false information on request.

The passengers were also fined $1000 for failing to comply with noticed direction in relation to section 7/8/9 – COVID-19.
