Police arrest four in stolen car at Evanston Gardens, South Australia

Police have arrested four people following a pursuit through the northern suburbs overnight.

Just before midnight on Tuesday 28 June, a patrol spotted a stolen red Holden sedan speeding in the opposite direction along Main North Road at Elizabeth. As soon as the patrol did a u-turn in an attempt to stop it, the Holden sped off.

Checks showed the car was stolen from a Korunye home earlier through the day.

Police pursued the stolen Holden as it turned on to Anderson Walk, then Curtis Road and out through to the Northern Expressway. It travelled back on to Curtis Road through Angle Vale but was lost sight of as it headed towards Port Wakefield Road

Gawler patrols spotted the car about 20 minutes later on the Northern Expressway but was not pursued and monitored from the air by PolAir.

The stolen car travelled east on Angle Vale Road and into the Gawler area where it was spiked near Redbanks Road, Willaston. The vehicle continued driving south on Main North Road where all four tyres came off the rims.

The driver lost control briefly and side swiped a barrier just south of the Two Wells Bridge before driving through paddocks near Hillier Road. The car eventually stopped near Dyson Road where all four occupants ran from the car.

Patrols converged on the area with PD Rusty and all four were arrested.

The alleged driver, a 17-year-old boy from lower Light, was charged with illegal use of a motor vehicle, dangerous driving to escape police pursuit and contravening conditions of his learners permit. Two 16-year-olds from Two Wells and Redbanks, and a 17-year-old from Evanston were also charged with a range of offences.
