Trespassing charges, Millmerran & Yangan

Published:

Detectives from Major and Organised Crime Squad (Rural), State Crime Command, together with officers from the Darling Downs, Moreton, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast have charged 11 people following investigations into alleged trespassing incidents at agricultural locations in late March and early April.

A total of 11 people were arrested at locations across South East Queensland yesterday afternoon and overnight on 18 charges, including unlawfully entering farming land (trespass) and drug offences.

A 29-year-old woman and 26-year-old man were previously charged with unlawfully entering farming land (trespass) on April 5 and were bailed to appear in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court on May 9.

Detective Superintendent Jon Wacker, Drug and Serious Crime Group, State Crime Command, said the charges followed formal complaints from the owners of properties targeted by unauthorised protests.

"The Queensland Police Service respects the right of people to protest in a peaceful manner, however we have a duty to ensure the safety of protesters, farm workers and property owners,' Detective Superintendent Wacker said.

"Unauthorised protests in and around farmlands and industrial areas create significant personal and workplace safety risks.

"We will take enforcement action whenever necessary to ensure the safety of the community and to protect the rights of people to feel safe in their homes and at their place of work."

Investigations are continuing.
