Southside car chase

Police chased a car eight kilometres through southern Tuggeranong on Saturday night, then used tyre deflation devices to bring it to a halt. A police patrol spotted the car without registration plates driving erratically at 9.40pm on Saturday and attempted to get it to pull over. The driver ignored police. Three young men ran from the car when it stopped on Johnson Drive, Isabella Plains, and police hope witnesses will help find them. The car was a metallic blue VE Commodore sedan with rear sections painted in grey primer and some patches of metallic purple.
