Damaged Nissan Silvia stolen at Tailem Bend

Plus five drivers face consequences for allegedly driving while drugged, drunk or disqualified.

An eye-catching sports car has been reported stolen at Tailem Bend.

Police are looking for the yellow 1999 Nissan Silvia pictured above, registration WUB 937, which was taken from a property on Culley Street last Thursday, early in the morning.

It was not driveable at the time it was stolen; it had a large dent on the left-hand side and a smaller dent on its bonnet.

Police do have one clue to go on.

A black ute towing the car on a trailer was captured on CCTV footage on Westbrook Road at 5.40am on the day in question.

Driver tests positive for meth on Palmer road

Meanwhile, police stopped several drivers doing the wrong thing over the weekend.

A 30-year-old woman from Davoren Park allegedly tested positive for methamphetamine after being pulled over on Reedy Creek Road at Pallamana at 3pm last Thursday.

She may be charged if a lab analysis of the test confirms the positive result.

Also in trouble is a 68-year-old man who will face a drink driving offence in court after being breath-tested in Murray Bridge.

He allegedly returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.093, almost double the legal limit, after being pulled over on Ridge Road at 8.20pm on Sunday.

Finally, two drivers have had their cars impounded for 28 days and will face court after allegedly being caught driving while disqualified.
