Truckie off road after drug drive
A SEMI-TRAILER driver caught with methylamphetamine in his system was fired the same day after his boss found out.
Ipswich truckie Allen David Dooley was behind the wheel of a Kenworth on the Pacific Motorway south of Brisbane when he was intercepted by police on May 15.
His saliva again tested positive to a drug when he was pulled over driving in Ipswich just two months later.
Dooley, 40, from Riverview, pleaded guilty in Ipswich Magistrates Court to drug driving at Eagleby on May 15; and drug driving at One Mile on July 25.
Prosecutor Senior Constable Bernard Elmore said Dooley was intercepted at 7.30pm on the Pacific Motorway and tested positive to having methylamphetamine in his system.
