An anti-same sex marriage campaigner is the subject of a police investigation after he took to Twitter to brag about his “sneaky” border cross.
The anti-same sex marriage campaigner tweeted four pictures of himself at a Queensland beach on Sunday, writing “sneaky run across the border and back. Avoided the CCP virus police.”
Social media users immediately hit back, some asking if he had just admitted to breaking the law.
Queensland Police also replied to the tweet, writing “we are aware of this tweet and are making further enquiries.”

Mr Shelton in turn replied to Queensland Police, writing he had been happy to speak to officers to explain his run along the coast “from Coolangatta to the Tweed and back.”
“There were no checkpoints for joggers, walkers or lizards,” he wrote.
“I have not visited a hotspot. There is a valid debate re borders but I respect the role of our police.”
