Around 10.10pm last night (19 September 2019) police on patrol sighted a white Kia Cerato sedan travelling along Koondoola Avenue in Koondoola. As the vehicle turned onto Butterworth Avenue, police activated their emergency lights and sirens in an attempt to conduct a vehicle stop.
It is alleged the driver of the sedan failed to stop and continued at speed towards Beach Road.

• Reckless Driving to Escape Pursuit by Police;
• Driver of a Vehicle Failed to Comply with a Direction to Stop (circumstance of aggravation);
• No Authority to Drive (never held); and
