Six schoolies arrested overnight

POLICE have arrested six male Schoolies overnight for drug possession.

Official celebrations kicked off for students last night and while police say they are generally pleased with the behaviour, a number of them have stirred trouble.

The arrests are a slight improvement to last year when eight Schoolies were arrested on the first night.

There were 12 people arrested on 24 charges which were non-schoolies.

The majority of the non-schoolies arrested related to drug offences.

The Bulletin was down at the Esplande this morning where a number of small groups of Schoolies and Toolies were spotted soaking up the sunrise on the beach.
