Couple taunt police in stolen car after dodging RBT site on the Gold Coast

A MAN and a woman are on the run after taunting police in a stolen car and almost mowing down an officer during a dangerous rampage on the Gold Coast.

Police said the stolen vehicle first came to their attention after the driver dodged an RBT site on the Gold Coast Highway at Main Beach around 11am on Thursday.

It’s alleged the car narrowly missed hitting an officer as it sped past the RBT site at more than 120km/h.


The vehicle was then spotted a short time later stopped at the intersection of Paradise Island Road.

Police said officers “indicated for the driver to pull over” but the man behind the wheel accelerated through a red light and narrowly missed their patrol car as it took off south along the highway.

The driver then allegedly turned around and came awfully close to smashing into the police car as it sped back towards the officers down the wrong side of the highway.

Police said the man and his female passenger then dumped the stolen vehicle at Pacific Fair Shopping Centre before boarding a bus, bound for the Nerang.

In a statement, Queensland Police said at no point during the incident did police pursue the stolen car and attempts to locate the man and woman are continuing.

Anyone with any information that could help police locate the pair is urged to come forward.
