Police Arrest Four over Road Chase Yesterday

Police have four males in custody after a dramatic car chase through the Somerset region yesterday afternoon.

Police allege that three boys – 14, 15, 16 and an 18-year-old man entered a stolen car in Lowood around 2PM. The vehicle was reported missing from Graceville earlier in the morning.

Police attempted to intercept the blue BMW sedan resulting in a pursuit when the car sped away.

The pursuit was called off when the car reached excessive speeds through Minden and Mount Tarampa.

Tyre deflation devices were deployed near Glenore Grove, leading to the group’s arrest.

Police have confirmed that two other vehicles had also been stopped by the tyre spikes, but they were not connected to the incident.

No charges had been filed at this stage - all are assisting police with their inquiries.
