The officers stopped a blue Holden Commodore and arrested the driver for traffic offences.

“The other offender is described as being of indigenous appearance, aged in his early 20s, medium build, 180cm, and was wearing brown shorts, a dark basketball jersey with ’35 Durant’ on the back, and white sneakers with black laces.”
