Man arrested over southern suburbs pursuit, SA

A man has been arrested following a lengthy police pursuit that went from Moana to Marion, according to SA Police.

Just before 11pm on Wednesday 6 December, a South Coast patrol attempted to stop a black Holden Commodore on Commercial Road at Moana for traffic matters, but the male drive allegedly refused and the vehicle was pursued to Port Noarlunga then Noarlunga to the Colonnades Shopping Centre car-park where patrols used road spikes, but the black Commodore sedan continued.

The pursuit continued north along the Londsdale Road at Hallett Cove until the police helicopter (PolAir) took over and followed the vehicle from overhead onto Brighton Road to North Brighton, then through back streets to Glengowrie, Warradale and then Seacombe Heights before eventually the car drove into the upper car-park of the Marion Shopping Centre at Oaklands Park and stopped at around midnight.

A 29-year-old man from Port Adelaide was arrested without incident. He has been charged with engaging in a police pursuit and failing to stop.

There were no injuries in the incident and only a minor damage to one police vehicle.

The car was not listed as stolen.
