Three teenagers charged over Gold Coast joyride

A luxury car, that was allegedly stolen from a Surfers Paradise home on Friday night, has been tracked down and three teens accused of taking it on a joy ride.

The Mercedes Benz was spotted by an off-duty Police officer around 11pm on Saturday, travelling southbound on the M1 at Coomera.

Polair was called in and around 11.49pm a police dog squad officer saw the vehicle on Olsen Avenue at Labrador.


It was then tracked by the Police chopper to Blake Street in Southport where it stopped.

It’s then that Police say the 15-year-old boy behind the wheel tried to make a run for it into a house.

Police then approached the vehicle, arresting a front and rear seat passenger without incident.

The boy continued on his getaway, but was nabbed in a nearby yard. He has since been charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle and driving without a licence.

A 15-year-old girl and 19-year-old woman have both been charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle.
