Byron Farmers Markets temporarily moved to make way for COVID clinic

The Byron Farmers Market is to be held opposite Elements resort on Bayshore Drive this week, while health authorities use the Cavanbah Centre for a drive-through COVID testing service.

Police said they charged four people after several police chases on the Northern Rivers on Sunday.

They said the group of two women, one man and a 15-year-old boy were in a stolen white Toyota Camry with Queensland registration plates and travelling south along Hinterland Way, Ewingsdale, in an ‘erratic manner’, threatening other drivers with a replica pistol around 11.30 Sunday morning.

Police started chasing the car but gave up due to safety concerns.

They said the car continued onto the Pacific Highway at Knockrow, south of the Byron/Bangalow turn-off and crossed to the wrong side of the road, pointing the replica pistol at passing drivers.

Officers in another police car started to chase but again gave up due to safety concerns.

A short time later, police said, officers from the Richmond police district were called to a property at Pimlico Road, Pimlico, after reports the stolen car had been abandoned.

Police used dogs to help search for the suspects and arrested them in nearby bushland before taking them to the station in Lismore and laying charges.

A 25-year-old man and two 18-year-old women were refused bail and were due to face Lismore Local Court later today, Monday 4 November.

The 15-year-old boy was also refused bail and was due to appear at a children’s court the same afternoon.
