Man fined $500 for breaking Covid-19 curfew in 2021

A Pembroke man was fined after he admitted breaking Covid-19 regulations in 2021 by being away from his home after curfew.

Tiquann Pieroni, 28, plead guilty to the offence in Magistrates’ Court this morning after he missed a previous trial date.

The court heard that at about 12.26am on May 6, 2021, police on South Road in Paget noticed a car being driven east near the White Sands Road junction.

At the time, a curfew was in effect between midnight and 5am.

The officers stopped the vehicle and spoke to the driver about why he was out after curfew.

Pieroni reportedly said that he had gone out to pick up his girlfriend and take her home after her vehicle had broken down.

He further told the officers: “I’m so sorry. I wouldn’t do this generally but she had no way to get home.”

Senior magistrate Maxanne Anderson fined Pieroni $500 for the offence and handed down a 12-month conditional discharge.
