Teen group stirs up trouble
HERVEY Bay police were kept busy on Tuesday night after a cancelled party left a group of 60 to 70 teenagers with nowhere to go.
The group caused headaches for officers as they wandered around smashing bottles and stirring up neighbourhood dogs in Point Vernon.
Senior Constable Matt Thompson said the teens, aged between 14 and 17, had planned to attend a party on Flinders Street that didn’t eventuate.
Police were called and issued several “move on” instructions to the group throughout the night.
He said they were found on the Esplanade about 10pm and again in Long Street about 10.30pm. They were also ordered to move on from Point Vernon Caravan Park about 11pm and then The Pines at 1.30am.
Snr Const Thompson said several members of the group were being loud and abusive.
