Queensland Police were forced to use road spikes to bring an end to a joyride by four teenagers – the youngest aged just 13 – in a stolen Range Rover at Burleigh Waters last night.
Police say an 18-year-old woman and three other teenagers have been charged over the incident.
“Just before 8pm last night, as part of routine patrols police located an allegedly stolen Range Rover on Geraldton Drive at Varsity Lakes,” Queensland Police said in a statement.
“With the assistance of PolAir, police began tracking the vehicle and successfully deployed a tyre deflation device on Cassowary Drive at Burleigh Waters.”
Police say the vehicle continued into The Promenade at Robina where the group abandoned the vehicle and fled the scene.
All four were arrested after a short foot pursuit around 9pm.
An 18-year-old Labrador woman has been charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle. She was granted police bail to appear in Southport Magistrates Court on April 21.
A 13-year-old girl and two boys, aged 13 and 14, were also charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle. They will be dealt with under the Youth Justice Act.
The car was allegedly stolen from a Benowa residence overnight on April 3.
