A group of teenagers have been arrested and charged following a lengthy police chase on the Gold Coast yesterday afternoon.
Four teenagers, aged between 13 and 18-years-old, allegedly took a BMW from a Victoria Point home in Brisbane, before driving it all the way down to the coast.
The vehicle was seen a number of times between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, allegedly committing two petrol drive-offs during the afternoon as well.
