Police have fined a Melton woman after she was discovered on a train more than 5km from home.

The metro-lockdown traveller was found checked between Sunshine and Southern Cross stations and told officers she was heading into the Melbourne CBD to buy organic food.

In the last 24 hours, police also fined two regional Victorian men at a checkpoint in the Macedon Ranges for entering a stage 4 restricted area to attend a strip club.

They told police that when they arrived in Melbourne, they discovered the venues were not open.

Police issued a total of 82 fines on Friday for breaches of the Chief Health Officer’s directions – and of those, 11 were at vehicle checkpoints.

All up, 27,816 vehicles were inspected.

Police are also carrying out fewer spot checks, with 2045 conducted on homes, businesses and public places yesterday.

Almost half a million have been carried out since March 21.
