Police on the scent as burning bacon leads to drug bust

BURNING bacon has caught out drug users in a Mountain Creek unit.

Firefighters were called to Cootamundra Drv following several reports of smoke coming from inside a unit about 9am.

The minor fire was found to have been caused by burning bacon on the stove, but the police were called when evidence of drug use was found.

A police media spokeswoman said officers were continuing to investigate the matter and were being helped with their inquiries.

In other news passengers and two drivers were lucky to escape injury following a two-vehicle collision on busy Brisbane Rd in Mooloolaba yesterday.

Police attended the scene at Pengelly's Bridge just after midday and although the cars sustained minor damage, all occupants were uninjured.

Traffic signals were also disrupted briefly yesterday morning after a car hit a traffic light pole on Currie St in Nambour.

The single-vehicle crash happened just after 6am.

The sole occupant of the vehicle was taken to Nambour Hospital as a precaution but was not injured.

The traffic lights were quickly restored.
