Lead found on Linden Ave laser light mystery

POLICE are believed to have made a breakthrough in the case of laser pointers being shone at passing vehicles in Boambee East a week ago.

Acting on information received from the public, officers visited a Coffs Harbour address yesterday and questioned a 13-year-old male.

A laser light was surrendered and the youth is assisting police with further inquiries.

Reports were made by Linden Ave residents late on May 4 about green laser beams being shone at them.

Officers who followed up the complaint said they also had the lasers pointed on them as they tried to find the culprits.

Further reports were made that youths were shining lights near Boambee shopping centre and harassing truck drivers travelling on the Pacific Highway past the Bruce King Drive turn-off.

Police can fine people $5,000 if they are caught with high-powered lasers in public without a valid reason.
