Stolen car leads police on dramatic chase between Logan and Brisbane

A MAN has been charged with a string of offences after allegedly leading police on a dangerous pursuit in a stolen car north of the Gold Coast overnight.

Officers allegedly attempted to intercept the vehicle on Allgas Street at Slacks Creek around 12:30am, but the driver failed to stop.

The car was later spotted on Rudge Street in Woodridge where it again allegedly sped away from police.

POLAIR was deployed after the vehicle was seen travelling with no headlights on, speeding in the wrong direction towards oncoming cars on Kingston Road.

It then drove onto the Logan Motorway at Loganholme before speeding through the streets of Logan, running a red light on Fairfield Road and turning down the wrong side of Annerley Road at Annerley.

The vehicle continued along Gladstone Road and onto Montague Road where police successfully deployed stingers.

Police said the driver abandoned the damaged car two blocks away on Hocking Street and was pursued on foot by officers before he was eventually detained and arrested.

The 24-year-old Meadowbrook man has since been charged with four counts of dangerous operation of a vehicle, two counts of fail to stop motor vehicle, unlawful use of motor vehicle, failure to appear in accordance with undertaking and breach of bail condition.

He was due to front Brisbane Magistrates Court today.
