Man hands himself in to police

THE launch of the Tweed police and Tweed Daily News' joint Fraud Buster campaign in last Saturday's newspaper resulted in a man handing himself into police.

The man in the white Toyota Hilux also contacted the Tweed Daily News to publicly apologise for his actions in failing to pay for fuel at Chinderah on July 8. He says he has now repaid the money claiming "it was an honest mistake".

This week we have another two men suspected of failing to pay for fuel, one of whom it's alleged has offended three times.

Case 1

POLICE are appealing for help in identifying the driver of the vehicle shown in this CCTV footage.

Police say on June 29, July 26 and July 29 the driver of this light blue/silver Holden Commodore sedan, Queensland registration number 994TVD failed to pay for petrol at a local service station in the Chinderah area. Police believe the driver may be working or residing locally in the Tweed Coast area.

Police have released CCTV images of a person they would like to speak to in relation to the incident and who may be able to assist with their inquiries.

The male shown in this picture has closely shaven dark hair and a tattoo on his upper right bicep.
