Young boys charged over wild police pursuit across Gold Coast

Two young boys have been charged after allegedly leading police on a wild pursuit across the Gold Coast in a stolen Jeep, before crashing into a police car.

The vehicle was allegedly nabbed during the burglary of a home on Catalina Court at Mermaid Waters on Friday, November 29.

The vehicle was then spotted travelling erratically along Bermuda Street in Burleigh Waters around 11.50 last night.


Police activated lights and sirens in a bid to intercept the Jeep, however it failed to stop and continued to speed off.

POLAIR tracked the stolen car before officers were able to deploy a tyre deflation device as it travelled along the Pacific Highway.

The vehicle continued for a short distance before it eventually collided with a police car at Tugun.

Two boys, aged 12 and 15, were arrested at the scene.

A 15-year-old Bray Park boy has since been charged with 11 offences including two counts of enter dwelling with intent, receiving tainted property, possessing dangerous drugs and one count each of evade, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, fraud, driving unlicensed and possession of a drug utensil.

A 12-year-old Red Hill boy has been charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle.

Thankfully, no one was seriously injured in the incident.
