Man accused of stealing car from shopping centre during Logan crime spree

A man has been charged over a wild crime spree across Logan, which allegedly saw him steal a car from a shopping centre and lead police on a chase.

It all unfolded around 5.30pm on Saturday, when police spotted a silver Holden Commodore driving along Browns Plains Road without registration plates.

“It will be alleged officers attempted to intercept the vehicle when it performed a burnout, before accelerating away,” Queensland Police said.


Officers called in the police chopper to help monitor the car as it sped through the Logan area, before it came to a stop at a shopping centre in Boronia Heights.

The man allegedly parked the vehicle at the centre, before stealing a white jeep from the carpark.

The chase finally came to an end around an hour later when police deployed road spikes on Chambers Flat Road.

The 25-year-old man from Sippy Downs was arrested and has since been charged with two counts each of dangerous operation of a vehicle while adversely affected by an intoxicating substance and unlawful use of a motor vehicle.

He has also been charged with one count each of evasion, burglary and driving a car without registration plates.

He was denied police bail and is due to appear in the Beenleigh Magistrates Court on Tuesday, May 4.
