A police pursuit along the Federal Highway yesterday (9 September) has resulted in the arrest of three men and a teenage girl, with ACT police also seeking to extradite an ACT man for a number of offences.

The four occupants of a Ford sedan that had been stolen from Canberra were spotted by police officers yesterday at about 11:35 am.

When police attempted to pull the vehicle over, it failed to stop and a pursuit was initiated.

The vehicle stopped on Sutton Road, near the Federal Highway, and all four occupants ran from the car.

Police arrested a 20-year-old ACT man in nearby bushland, along with two men aged 32 and 24, and a 16-year-old girl.

Police will allege the 32-year-old man and the teenage girl were both found to be in possession of cannabis and ‘ice’ and were carrying more than $1500 in cash.

The four people were all taken to Queanbeyan Police Station where charges were laid, including ACT Policing seeking the extradition of the 20-year-old man who is wanted over several serious offences including aggravated burglary, ramming a police vehicle, arson and theft.

ACT Policing expect further charges will be laid against the 20-year-old man.

The 32-year-old man was charged with not stopping during a police pursuit, driving recklessly, driving a conveyance taken without consent, resisting an officer in the execution of duty, two charges of possession of a prohibited drug, and dealing in proceeds of crime.

He was refused bail and will appear in Queanbeyan Local Court today (10 September).

The 24-year-old man was charged with being carried in a conveyance taken without consent. He was also refused bail and will appear in Queanbeyan Local Court today.

The 16-year-old girl was charged with being carried in a conveyance taken without consent, possession of a prohibited drug and dealing in proceeds of crime. She was given conditional bail and is due to appear in a Children’s Court on 30 September.
