Boy leads police to own home

Date

Phillip Thomson

A 17-year-old south Canberra boy has been arrested after a police chase on Friday afternoon which ended at the boy's own driveway, according to ACT Policing. 

Police said the 11-minute pursuit went through streets in Torrens, Pearce and Chifley before the driver stopped at his home address.  

Police said they saw the disqualified driver leaving a Shell service station in a Ford Falcon while the police were patrolling in Melrose Drive, Phillip.

The vehicle accelerated away after police put on the sirens and flashing lights. 

There were two other people in the car. The boy was charged with three serious traffic-related offences, received bail and will appear in the ACT Childrens Court on March 8.
