Shores United win local derby in season opener

Shores United FC began their season in the Anzac Cup B football competition with a 3-1 win over local rivals the Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley FC last Sunday.

A Goonellabah woman wanted on warrants has been arrested for several offences including serious assault, theft and possession of marijuana and ice.

Police will allege that at 9.50am yesterday (Thursday, June 1) police saw a car parked behind the Lismore Skate Park. As police approached the vehicle a 25-year-old Goonellabah woman got out of the car and tried to walk away while putting something down her pants.

When spoken to she gave police a false name and address. A search revealed she had a bag containing a small amount of cannabis.

The woman was taken to Lismore Police Station where two outstanding warrants were executed.

She was placed in the custody of Corrective Services and strip-searched, during which she was found to be in possession of a small amount of the drug ‘ice’.

The woman was charged with possessing a prohibited drug and attempt to introduce drug into a place of detention. She also had outstanding charges relating to an alcohol theft in Wollongbar in February and a serious assault in Ballina in March served upon her.

The woman was subsequently refused bail at Court.
