Police arrested a man yesterday afternoon after he allegedly stole a taxi from the Sunshine Coast and drove it to Toowoomba.
The unoccupied vehicle had been parked at a driver drop off point in Caloundra when it was stolen around 11am.
At around 1pm, the taxi’s GPS tracker sent a signal indicating the vehicle was travelling on the Warrego Highway approaching Redbank.
PolAir 2 was deployed and tracked the vehicle through Toowoomba.
The driver pulled into the car park of a shopping centre on the corner of Ramsay and South streets in Centenary Heights where he was taken into custody.
A 26-year-old Noosaville man has been charged and will appear in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court today.
