Two men and a woman charged after pranging with police in Runaway Bay

Two men and a woman have been charged by police, following a vehicle intercept at Runaway Bay overnight.

Their vehicle, which was identified as stolen, was spotted by police at a drive-through restaurant on Lae Drive around 7:5-pm.

Police then proceeded to block the car from leaving with theirs, which it’s alleged led the occupants to reverse into another vehicle before driving into the police vehicle.

The officers report the three occupants refused to exit the car, and as a result OC spray was used to subdue one of the males.

Officers proceeded to search the vehicle, where it is reported they located a knife as well as a quantity of drugs and utensils.

Both the police vehicle and other vehicle sustained only minor damage.

A 33-year-old man, a 23-year-old Labrador woman and a 23-year-old Southport man were taken into custody and charged with various drug and motor vehicle offences.

All three are due to appear in the Southport Magistrates court today
