A man has been charged after allegedly crashing his car into security gates outside Queanbeyan Police Station yesterday (Tuesday 22 June).

At about 11:40 pm, a white Holden sedan was travelling north on Farrer Place, Queanbeyan, when it hit the rear entry security gate. The car became wedged between the entry gates as a result and the gates sustained serious damage.
