Fine surprise on arrival

A return visit by a former Dunedin man proved costly when police stopped him at the Dunedin International Airport for overdue fines this week.

The 34-year-old man arrived at the airport on Monday from Brisbane, where he had been living.

He was given the choice of paying $950 in overdue fines or having the matter dealt with in court.

''The man chose to cough up the money,'' Senior Sergeant Bruce Ross said.

It served as a warning to those who thought they could evade overdue fines, he said.
