A 46-year-old Moe woman will be charged with a number of traffic-related offences after she was pulled over in Moe on Monday.

Latrobe Highway Patrol said the woman was displaying false plates on the car she was driving.

Police alleged the woman refused to provide an oral fluid sample for a drug test and was interviewed at the scene.

About 10 minutes later, police pulled over another vehicle in Newborough.

A 24-year-old Moe woman was driving a car on a disqualified learner’s permit, police said.

Her car was impounded for 30 days and will cost $1185 to retrieve.

Police allege the woman also returned a positive result for methylamphetamine and will face court on summons at a later date.
