Charnwood calais seized a second time

By johnboy - 30 January 2012 22

ACT Policing has seized a vehicle for the second time in four months after it was seen doing a burnout in a carpark off Florey Drive yesterday (Sunday, January 29).

Police were conducting a mobile patrol in Latham around 4.40pm when they saw the black V8 Holden Calais doing the burnout.

When police arrived, the driver of the vehicle jumped out of the vehicle and ran off. A 19-year-old man, who was the owner of the vehicle, remained in the front passenger’s seat.

The driver, a 21-year-old Charnwood man, later returned to the vehicle and admitted to having driven the car during the burnout.

The vehicle, which had been seized by police for a similar offence in October last year, was seized again and transported to the Exhibit Management Centre where it will be held until the case in heard in court.

The driver will be summonsed to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.

Wow, that really is crap! My old communist 250 makes about 5HP, which is about 20HP per litre.

These kids should not have been doing what they were doing, in the place they were doing it, but I feel for them as I too was young once. There is a time and place for everything. In this case the time is after 10pm and the place is Stockdill drive.

The police putting out a media release seems a bit over the top for this kind of shenanigans. I wonder how many people have been hurt by someone doing a burn-out in Canberra? How does it compare to the number of people who have been killed during police pursuits?
