Police are seeking two men who disappeared from a car during a police pursuit through northern NSW which crossed the border into Queensland on Friday (April 6).
About 1.30pm, officers attached to the Tweed/Byron Target Action Group noticed that a silver Mazda 6 sedan parked outside a house in Dorothy Street, Murwillumbah, had stolen number plates.
As they were watching, four males ran from the home and entered the vehicle.
A short time later the officers initiated a pursuit after the Mazda driver failed to stop.
The car travelled through Murwillumbah, then west on Numinbah Road and continued to the border where the NSWP officers terminated the pursuit.
With the assistance of officers from Queensland Police Service the vehicle was monitored as it travelled through the Gold Coast hinterland.
Two of the occupants were arrested near Springbrook and taken to Nerang Police Station.
A 31-year-old Cudgen man was charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle and unlawful possession of a weapon.
A 22-year-old Murwillumbah man was charged with unlawful use of motor vehicle.
Both were refused bail to appear at Southport Magistrates Court on Saturday (April 7).
Officers from Tweed/Byron Police District continue with their inquiries to locate the two other males.
Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/
