Baker is accused of lunging at officers with a knife before fleeing.

He was later spotted trying to fill up again at a service station on the Gold Coast where he was surrounded by Police with their guns drawn before he managed to escape again.

Police allege the 29-year-old tried to steal two other cars before the chase came to an end in Surfers Paradise where he crashed into another car at the corner of Clifton St and Remembrance Drive.

Officers swarmed the vehicle, tasering Baker before he was arrested.

Baker is now facing 26 offences, accused of a number of break-ins across Logan and Brisbane over the last few weeks.

His lawyer did not apply for bail on his behalf with his case adjourned until May 16.
