A woman will appear in court today (Saturday, August 4) after being charged with attempting to bribe a police officer on the state’s Central Coast yesterday.
About 11.40am (Friday, August 3), a Brisbane Water Highway Patrol Officer was waved down by a passing motorist, and advised about the erratic manner in which a black Holden Commodore was being driven northbound, on the M1 freeway.
The officer located and followed the vehicle for a distance, before stopping it at Calga.
The 30-year-old woman driving the car was spoken to about her manner of driving and allegedly claimed it was a mechanical issue.
The officer issued a red defect notice to the vehicle which prevented it being driven any further.
Police will allege that while the officer was awaiting the arrival of other police, the woman approached him, and offered money in exchange for her release.
The conversation was recorded on In-Car Video.
The woman was conveyed to Gosford Police Station where she allegedly returned a positive sample during an oral drug test, to Methylamphetamine.
The woman was later charged with give/offer bribe to member of NSW Police and refused bail to appear at Wyong Bail Court on Saturday, August 4.
Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000
