Police arrest teens after van tracked through western Sydney

Two youths are in police custody after a van was tracked through western Sydney this morning.

A pursuit was initiated after a white Toyota Hiace van – which had been reported stolen from Toongabbie on 23 April 2020 – was seen travelling west on the Great Western Highway about 12:20am (Monday 27 April 2020).

The Police Airwing were called and assisted tracking the van to St Marys and Kingswood, along The Northern Road through Jordan Springs and Llandilo to Richmond Road at Berkshire Park where road spikes were successfully deployed.

The damaged van continued through Marayong onto the Quakers Parkway before the vehicle stopped in Pearce Road at Quakers Hill, where two boys, aged 15 and 17, were arrested with the assistance of a Dog Unit.

They have now been taken to Blacktown Police Station.

Police will allege the van reached speeds of up to 150 km/h and was – at times – driven on the wrong side of the Great Western Highway, Richmond Road and Quakers Parkway.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence.
