Dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, Logan area

Three boys and two girls have been charged with a range of stealing and dangerous driving offences following a police pursuit south of Brisbane last night.

Around 5.30pm, the group entered a liquor store on Sherwood Road at Sherwood and allegedly stole a large amount of alcohol.

Police were notified and PolAir commenced tracking the group in an alleged stolen vehicle, a grey Toyota Landcruiser.

The vehicle allegedly drove erratically at high speeds around the Logan area, posing a risk to other road users.

A tyre deflation device was successfully deployed, however the vehicle allegedly continued to drive dangerously on the rims of the car.

Police pursued the vehicle north along the M1 Motorway where it allegedly rammed a marked police vehicle. The four officers inside the vehicle suffered minor injuries and were conveyed to hospital.

While attempting to intercept the allegedly stolen Toyota Landcruiser, three other police cars were damaged.

The car was stopped near Greenslopes where the four boys were taken into police custody without incident.

A 14-year-old Goodna boy has been charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, unlawful use of a motor vehicle and stealing. He is due to appear in Brisbane Childrens Court this month.
