Police have charged a teenager with Skye’s Law following a pursuit in St Marys yesterday.

About 2.30pm on Saturday, local highway patrol police were driving along Carpenter Street in St Marys when they came across an unregistered trail bike.  

The bike performed a u-turn and when police signalled for it to stop it allegedly accelerated away.  

Police pursued the bike through several local streets before the bike went into the car park of a unit block.  

Officers searched the area and after receiving information from the public they found the rider on Francis Street.  

Police chased the male, who was now on foot, and arrested him a short time later.  

The bike was later found abandoned. Police will allege it had been stolen from the local area.  

The 17-year-old male has been charged with fail to stop police pursuit (Skye’s Law) and goods in custody.  

He has been refused bail and will appear at Parramatta Children’s Court later today.
