The Polaris all-terrain vehicle allegedly marked with NSW police insignia narrowly missed a Mitsubishi Triton utility on Wombeyan Caves Road, Bullio, at about 2 pm on Saturday (December 1).

After attending a property on Wombeyan Caves Road at Bullio, the suspect buggy was seized.

On Wednesday (December 5) inquires led police to a 46-year-old man at a Mount Annan home. The man provided officers with damaged stickers which were allegedly on the all-terrain vehicle at the time of the incident.

The 46-year-old has since been charged with a number of offences including driving a vehicle with unlawful police insignia.

He is due to appear at Moss Vale Local Court on February 19.

Police say possessing or driving a motor vehicle containing police insignia is an offence which carries a maximum of two years imprisonment and a fine of up to $11,000.
