A Sydney couple have been caught by police trying to sneak across the Queensland border.
The pair were travelling in a truck on the Bruce Highway at Murrumba Downs on Wednesday when they were intercepted by an officer.
The driver, a 27-year-old Jordan Springs man, crossed into Queensland at Coolangatta using a freight border pass.
Police say a 21-year-old woman, from Saint Clair, was also travelling in the vehicle without an exemption.
The couple were each fined $4003 for failing to comply with Queensland's border directions, which are in place to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The trucker was slugged a further $1305 for infringements including having an over-length vehicle and failing to correctly keep a work diary.
