Woman accused of breaching conditions

A 30-year-old woman is in more trouble with police after she allegedly spent some time living with a man who she was supposed to stay away from.

The accused was arrested, charged with two counts of failing to comply with her release conditions, held for a bail hearing, and later released with a future court date.

The officer pulled her over and the woman was arrested.
