It’s there that the Mustang was stopped with a tyre deflation device, but the driver then allegedly got into the Toyota Camry and got away.

All three were arrested at Grahams Road a short time later.
A 17-year-old Strathpine boy has been charged with two counts each of unlawful use of a motor vehicle and receive tainted property along with burglary and failure to appear.
