A COUPLE who led police on a car chase through western Sydney with their two young children in the back seat have been charged with a long list of serious offences.
Police say they attempted to stop the driver of a station wagon at Tregear about 9pm on Saturday after they recognised the vehicle was connected to several alleged criminal offences.
The driver sped away from police and a low-speed chase commenced, spanning several suburbs including Tregear, Ropes Crossing and Willmot until it stopped after road spikes were deployed in Palmyra Avenue.

It wasn’t until the vehicle had finally come to rest that police discovered two children, aged four and six, in the back seat.
The driver, a 36-year-old woman, and front seat passenger, a 39-year-old man, were arrested at the scene and taken to Mt Druitt Police Station where they were charged with a combined 13 charges relating to the chase and several previous criminal offences.
The couple were refused bail to front Parramatta Local Court later today.
Their children are now being cared-for by relatives.
