Cops use stinger to end chase
THE driver of a Ford Falcon arrested on Tuesday after a police pursuit has been released from custody and put under a curfew with his co-offender.
Police deployed stingers during the chase and the pursuit came to an end at 2pm when the car, which was allegedly stolen, hit a stinger on Lower Dawson Road.
Detective Sergeant Nick Williams said the 17-year-old male driver had been charged with two counts of evading police, two of dangerous driving, five counts of stealing and one each of unlawful use of a motor vehicle and being an unlicensed driver.
His co-offender, also 17, had been charged with one count of unlawful use of a motor vehicle and three of stealing. Both were granted bail and must report to police daily with a residential curfew between 7pm and 7am. They are due to appear in court later this month.
Speeds of 120kmh were recorded in a 100kmh zone and 90kmh speeds in a 70kmh zone along Gladstone Road in Rockhampton.
