Stingers used to stop stolen car
A WOODRIDGE woman is in custody after being arrested at 9pm Saturday driving a blue Holden car allegedly stolen from Walloon, near Ipswich, on Wednesday.
Queensland police were notified by New South Wales police about a car being driven north from the Glen Innes area.
Police attempted to intercept the car on the highway about 8pm at the New England Hwy intersection of Border Rd at Wallangarra but the driver did not stop.
A short time later police lost sight of the car due to the alleged high speed being travelled. Police later deployed stingers in Applethorpe and the car was successfully stopped about 9pm.
The 17-year-old from Woodridge was charged with disqualified driving, evade police, dangerous driving and unlawful use of a motor vehicle. She will appear in Warwick Magistrates Court this morning.
A 26-year-old Ipswich man, one of two male passengers in the car, was charged with four drug related charges and given a notice to appear in Stanthorpe Magistrates Court on February 26.
The only damage to the vehicle was to the front tyres. Police investigations are continuing.
Police from Wallangarra and two units from Stanthorpe were involved in the incident as well as New South Wales police.
