Two people have copped a hefty $4000 fine each for sneaking across the NSW border from Victoria.
NSW Police stopped a 50-year-old man at a checkpoint on Wednesday afternoon at Jingellic who was unable to produce a border permit.
The man told officers a number of stories about where his permit was and why he was crossing the border before it was determined he was trying to cross unlawfully.
He was fined $4000 for giving false information.
Police later stopped a 28-year-old woman at a border checkpoint at South Albury, who gave them a NSW driver's licence that had expired in 2015 and an expired border permit.
The woman applied for a new permit online but when she presented it to police, it was discovered her application contained false information.
She also got a $4000 fine as well as a $581 traffic infringement notice for driving with an expired licence.
Police also confronted a man in a van who sped through a border checkpoint at Corowa.
Police pursued the van and spoke with the 49-year-old driver, who admitted he didn't have a permit to enter NSW.
He was unable to provide a valid excuse to cross the border or a valid reason for leaving his home at Flemington, Victoria, almost 300km away.
Police told the man to return to Victoria and fined him $1000.
