Police pull guns on unlicensed juvenile after chase

An unlicensed juvenile was pulled from a car at gunpoint after leading police on a chase at up to 160 kilometres an hour.

Police allege a highway patrol officer saw a Magna driving past at a speed well over the speed limit on the Bruxner Highway near Drake yesterday.

Several members of the public also contacted police to say that they had almost collided with the Magna.

Police caught up to the vehicle at Drake where it was doing 120km/h, after earlier reaching speeds of 160km/h.

Police followed the Magna, which had no numberplates, into a driveway and blocked the exit.

The driver revved the vehicle and tried to drive past police, who pulled the driver out of the vehicle at gunpoint.

The driver, a juvenile, allegedly said ‘First time you ***** have got me, I’ve been doing this for a while’.

The juvenile was taken to Casino Police Station and charged with two counts of Furious Driving and Drive unlicensed.

The juvenile was released on conditional bail and will appear in Casino Childrens Court in January.
