Quangers boy racer nabbed.

By johnboy - 26 August 2011 15

A 24-year-old Queanbeyan man was arrested by members from Tuggeranong Police Station early this morning following a short pursuit through Wanniassa (Friday, August 26).

About 3.45am police were patrolling Wanniassa when they saw two cars exiting a car park on Denigan Street and accelerating away at high speed. Police activated emergency lights and sirens in an attempt to conduct a traffic stop on both cars. The cars continued to accelerate away from police.

At the intersection of Castleton Crescent and Bugden Avenue, Gowrie, one of the cars, a silver Honda Prelude, lost control and mounted the gutter, coming to rest in the garden of a residential home. The other car, a white Hyundai Excel, left the area.

Checks by police revealed the silver Honda Prelude had been stolen from a unit complex in Phillip.

The driver and passenger of the Honda Prelude were taken into custody with the passenger later released without charge. The 24-year-old driver was taken to the ACT Watch House and is charged with Drive While Disqualified, Drive Motor Vehicle without Consent, Going Equipped for Theft and Not Stop Vehicle If Requested/Signaled by Police. He will attend the ACT Magistrate’s Court later today.

The white Hyundai Excel was later located burnt out in Karabar, Queanbeyan.

Scum sucking evil rotten mongrel thief bastards.

A vehicle, whether it’s an Excel or whatever, is a major expense. It’s the results of someone’s work, and it may mean the difference between having work and not having it. The theft and wanton destruction of someone’s means of transport, and perhaps their livelihood, simply for the pleasure of destroying something, is a horrible horrible crime.

These people need flogging.

You know what, Thank you!

I happen to have a keen dislike of the Excel (safety issues, 1996) so that particular dislike had me more focused on the thief an the crappy car, than the fact that this is involving a car theft (albeit the prelude)

I Drive an 08 (MY07) Honda Accord Euro, which i went to allot of trouble to save for , arrange, and purchase, I chose it carefully, as i wanted a safe and comfortable car, being a commuter.

Even when i put the cost of the car aside (a fair bit for me, not much for some, and allot for others) the time, consideration, and care that has gone into it is allot, not to mention the reliance i have on it.

Some poor bugger has woken up without their car, and if it were me, that would be hell, so yes, a moment’s though for the poor bugger who lost their car, prelude or jaguar, it’s still someones car!

And also, +1 for flogging the P**cks.

Another vote for flogging these scum.

And another.

An Excel and Prelude ‘accelerating away from police’… I assume they were being chased by the bicycle police?!

Hey, it was a triple turbo Excel with nitrous. The Prelude was following in its slipstream.

Or, they were accelerating from the car park at speed, which is when police tried to stop them.

A Hyundai Excel (which hasn’t been built for what, 10 years or more?) accelerated away from Police? What the hell do Police drive these days?

Pork Hunt 6:40 pm 26 Aug 11

The white Commodores must have been in for a service…

p1 2:28 pm 26 Aug 11

Not often a Excel beats a Prelude…

The cars continued to accelerate away from police.

From which frame of reference?

“The white Hyundai Excel was later located burnt out in Karabar, Queanbeyan.”

Did everyone a favour.

Seriously though. Book needs to be thrown at the one to be caught. A slap on the wrist and some community service isnt much of a detterant.

Chances of a custodial sentence?

Zero chance.
