Police arrest three after stolen BMW found, South Australia

Three people have been arrested after a stolen car was pursued throughout the metropolitan area in the early hours of this morning.

Police will allege that about 12.50am today (Thursday 17 June), a stolen grey BMW sedan was spotted by patrols on Lavender Drive at Parafield Gardens.

The BMW sped off from police, who requested the police helicopter (PolAir) to track the vehicle from above.

The stolen car headed north on the wrong side of Martins Road, before moving to the Northern Expressway. It continued to travel throughout the northern suburbs at excessive speed, before the car rammed a police car at North East Road, Walkerville near a service station.

The police officer driving the car was not injured.

The car continued on towards the western suburbs, with road spikes deployed at South Road, Regency Park.

The BMW eventually stopped on Grand Junction Road at Angle Park, and all three occupants were arrested.

A 23-year-old Parafield Gardens man (driver), a 22-year-old Enfield man and a 19-year-old woman from Renown Park were charged with numerous offences including illegal use of a motor vehicle, acts to endanger life and drive dangerously to evade police.

The two men were refused bail to appear in the Port Adelaide Magistrates Court today, and the woman was bailed to appear in court at a later date.
