Polair tracks stolen car north of the Gold Coast

A trio of teenagers have allegedly had their joyride cut short, after Police rolled out tyre spikes near Browns Plains.

It is claimed the group was in a stolen vehicle when they failed to stop for police on Ewing Road, Woodridge around 12.25am and was then monitored from the air by Polair2.

A tyre deflation device was deployed on nearby Browns Plains Road at Heritage Park, blowing the two front tyres of the stolen 4WD.


The vehicle continued until coming to a halt in Browns Plains Road, Hillcrest.

Polair2 tracked the three people who jumped out of the vehicle and fled on foot.

All three were located nearby and taken into custody.

Three teens – a 15-year-old girl from Logan and two 14-year-old boys, one from Loganlea and the other Yeronga- have been charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle and will be dealt with under the provisions of the Youth Justices Act.

The vehicle- which had been stolen from Camp Hill on the 19th or 20th of September- sustained significant damage to the under carriage and tyres.

Police investigations are continuing.
