Police arrest three after pursuit at Gosford

Three teenagers have been arrested following a pursuit with police on the Central Coast today.

About 3pm today (Friday 20 May 2022), police were called to Springfield Road, Springfield, after the occupants of a Mercedes were reportedly seen wearing balaclavas.

Officers attached to Brisbane Water Police District responded and located the Mercedes on Donnison Street, Gosford, and attempted to stop the vehicle.

The Mercedes – reportedly stolen from Eastwood this week – failed to stop, and a pursuit was initiated, travelling along the M1.

With the assistance of PolAir, the vehicle was monitored travelling through the NorthConnex tunnel and onto the M2 before again heading north back onto the M1.

Police stopped the Mercedes on the Hawkesbury River Bridge where the three male occupants – two aged 17 and a 16-year-old – were arrested.

They have been taken to Gosford Police Station where they remain in custody.
