Dog squad and helicopters deployed against stolen car

A TYRE deflation device had to be deployed to stop a stolen SUV in Ascot after a chase involving police helicopters last night.

Police say the vehicle failed to stop when instructed at Boondall just before 1am.

It was then seen acting suspiciously in the Zillmere area.

Police allege the car failed to stop a second time when they attempted to intercept it, so Polair Brisbane was brought in to follow the vehicle near Henry Street, Ascot.

Police then successfully deployed a tyre deflation device in nearby Yabba Street.

The five occupants, a woman and four men all then fled on foot but were found thanks to police working with a dog squad.

A 21-year-old Mitchelton woman has been charged with one count each of unlawful use of a motor vehicle, trespass and fail to take reasonable care of a syringe.

She is expected to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on November 29.

Four men - two 18-year-old men, both from Bracken Ridge, and two 25-year-old men, one from Bald Hills and the other Mitchelton - have been charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle.

All are expected to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court tomorrow, Monday November 7.

The stolen vehicle sustained heavy damage.
