A man has been charged over allegedly attempting to bribe a police officer at the NSW/Victoria border while trying to cross into the Riverina.
Just before 2pm on Friday, a vehicle was stopped by NSW Police at the Barmah Bridge checkpoint.
"Officers spoke with the driver, a 66-year-old man, and requested his border permit to enter NSW," a NSW Police statement said.
"Police will allege in court that the man could not provide a valid permit and instead offered an envelope with $1000 to the officer.
"The Victorian man was arrested and taken to Deniliquin Police Station, where he was charged with give/offer bribe to member of NSW Police."
The man was granted strict conditional bail and is due to appear before Moama Local Court on November 4.
