Albany train jumpers charged

Albany Advertiser

Police have charged two men who were caught riding on a grain train on Saturday night.

Cranbrook police confirmed on Tuesday the two 20-year-old men, from Albany, had been charged with trespassing after they were apprehended 90 minutes into their allegedly alcohol-fuelled plan to stow away on the train to Perth.

The train was forced to stop in Cranbrook after the two men were spotted on top of a carriage.

Both men will face one count of trespassing each when they appear in Albany Magistrate’s Court on April 19.

Cranbrook police Sergeant Laurie Seton said the two men then had to wait for a lift home to Albany.
