Police terminate M1 car chase following Upper Coomera robbery

POLICE have found one of two cars allegedly stolen from an Upper Coomera home this afternoon.

Crews were first called to a Siggies Place residence at around 1.40pm following reports the property was being burgled by up to two men.

A white and a blue Corolla were allegedly stolen from the address.


The police helicopter successfully tracked the white car on Goldmine Road, Ormeau and alerted ground crews to its location.

Police on the ground gave chase and followed the car onto Lahrs Road and proceeded onto the northbound lanes of the Pacific Motorway where officers were forced to terminate the pursuit at around 1:54pm.

The white Corolla was found minutes later dumped in the carpark of the Logan Hyperdome.

Officers are still looking for the two drivers and the second blue Corolla.

It’s understood the blue Corolla was last seen being driven by a man wearing a red cap on Tamborine-Oxenford Road shortly after the initial break and enter.

The driver of the white Corolla is described as wearing a black cap and having a distinctive tattoo on his hand.
