Vision: Evade police, drug possession, Beerwah

Two people have been charged following an evade police incident on the Sunshine Coast yesterday afternoon.

At 4.30pm, officers from Maroochydore were involved in a operation targeting vehicles of interest within the Sunshine Coast when they noticed a sedan allegedly bearing false plates on Steve Irwin Way.

Police followed the vehicle for a short time before activating lights and sirens however the vehicle allegedly accelerated away and crossed onto the path of oncoming traffic before returning to the correct side.

Police will allege the vehicle then drove onto the left-hand side shoulder of the roadway and attempted to enter the traffic lane just north of the Glasshouse turnoff.

It will further be alleged the vehicle collided with two stopped vehicles while trying to drive between them and when the police car approached, it will be alleged the vehicle reversed heavily towards them.

Officers who were alighting the police vehicle were forced to jump back in to avoid being hit.

At this time other police attended the scene and the occupants of the vehicle were taken into custody.

A subsequent search of the vehicle allegedly located almost 100 grams of methamphetamine, an amount of cannabis and cash, stolen iPhones, an extendable baton and a knife.

A 33-year-old Beerwah man has been charged with a number of offences including dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, failing to stop, unlicensed driving, possession of false registration plates, possessing dangerous drugs and unlawful possession of a weapon (knife).

A 27-year-old Dicky Beach woman has been charged with possessing dangerous drugs, possessing tainted property, possession of property suspected of being the proceeds of crime and unlawful possession of a weapon. Both are due to appear in the Maroochydore Magistrates Court today.
