A man accused of stowing away on a freight train has been arrested in Adelaide, after allegedly crossing into SA from Victoria in breach of travel restrictions.
A rail supervisor found the 41-year-old, and called police, after the train arrived in Adelaide early this morning.
Police said the man boarded the train in the Victorian town of Dimboola, before it departed for Adelaide last night.
They did not say if the man was from the Wimmera town or from elsewhere within Victoria.
Police said the man had earlier submitted a cross border travel registration form, but failed to wait for a judgement.
He has been charged with breaching COVID-19 directions and has been refused bail to face court later today.
Dimboola is on the main train line between Adelaide and Melbourne.
It is about 100 kilometres east of the South Australian border, leaving it outside of relaxed border restrictions announced yesterday.
Keep up to date with the main COVID-19 news on our live coronavirus blog.The incident comes after four men admitted stowing away on a freight train to Adelaide in July, after border restrictions between South Australia and Victoria came in.
The men all pleaded guilty to failing to follow COVID-19 directions.
They escaped conviction after admitting the offences and spending a day in custody.
Police arrested three men last week over separate instances of entering South Australia from Victoria by car in contravention of border restrictions.
