Police have charged two men after a pursuit at Brighton Le Sands overnight, NSW Police say.
Just before 11pm (Thursday 8 February 2018), police attached to St George Local Area Command were patrolling The Grand Parade, when they attempted to stop a Holden Commodore to speak with the driver.
When the vehicle failed to stop, a pursuit was initiated, coming to a stop at the intersection of The Grand Parade and Bay Street.
During a search of the vehicle, police allegedly located a knife and drugs.
Subsequent police checks revealed that the driver was disqualified.
The driver, a 30-year-old man and his passenger, a 24-year-old man, were arrested and taken to Kogarah Police Station.
The vehicle was seized and will undergo forensic analysis.
The 30-year-old was charged with police pursuit – not stop (Skye’s Law), drive whilst disqualified and custody of a knife.
The 24-year-old was charged with breach bail conditions.
They were both refused bail to appear at Sutherland Local Court today (Friday 9 February 2018).
