Police target Innaloo in night operation

A POLICE operation in Innaloo overnight has resulted in 14 charges against drivers.

Scarborough Police combined with Breath and Drug Unit officers for the operation on March 21.

A booze and drug bus was set up in the area, with units fanning out to saturate the suburb throughout the night.

Senior Sergeant Craig Wanstall said it was largely in response to safety concerns from Innaloo residents raised at a recent community forum.

More than 800 vehicles were stopped, resulting in seven positive random breath tests, three driving without a licence charges, two charges of possessing methamphetamine and two charges of driving an unlicensed vehicle.

Police will continue to target Innaloo, with another major operation scheduled in the next few weeks.
