Teens charged over wild police chase in stolen Range Rover

Four teenagers, including two aged just 13-years-old, have been charged after leading police on a wild chase through suburban Gold Coast streets in a stolen Range Rover.

The dramatic scenes unfolded around 8pm last night, when police spotted the luxury vehicle, which had allegedly been stolen from a home in Benowa on Saturday, driving in Varsity Lakes.

Officers called in the police chopper to help track the car as it drove to Burleigh Waters, where police were able to deploy road spikes.

Despite destroying the wheels, the teens managed to drive the car all the way to The Promenade at Robina where they dumped the vehicle before fleeing on foot.

Following a short chase, the teens were finally tracked down by police nearby and taken into custody.

An 18-year-old Labrador woman has since been charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle.

She was granted police bail to appear in Southport Magistrates Court on April 21.

While a 13-year-old girl and two boys, aged 13 and 14, were also charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle.

They will be dealt with under the Youth Justice Act.

Wow the Youth justice act!
That will teach them.

These thugs need to be treated like the criminals they are. My husbands car was stolen from the same area last year and it is terrifying to live in an area not known to be previously dodgy with ongoing crime. One day these people will steal from the wrong house and end up dead

So all the fuss a couple of months ago seems to have done little to deter these criminals.
Just someone else’s pride and joy trashed and now the inconvenience of going through insurance and getting to work.
All the while they are back out on the street and will probably do it all over again.
If they robbed a servo or bank they would be in jail now.
Who voted for this mob!

All parents should also be charge, unfortunately most parents of that age (Parents age 30-40’s) don’t have any intelligence unfortunately anyway. Others also a problem – Parents & Gov. Teachers lack intelligence,

PS: Who covers the cost & problems of the property vehicles?….the teens don’t, the parents should be charged and costs to the owners.

About time we called this out ,its stealing, charge them with that and its given them a criminal record which may be more of a deterrent than the “community service ” they will probably get
