A man will appear in court today after a pursuit in Llandilo on the weekend.
About 12.10am on Saturday, officers from the State Crime Command’s Raptor Squad were patrolling the Cranbrook area when they stopped the driver of a Ford Falcon travelling on Ninth Avenue, Llandilo.
As officers approached the window of the driver – and sole occupant of the vehicle – he allegedly accelerated away from them.
“A pursuit was initiated and continued through several streets in the suburb, before being terminated due to safety concerns,” a Police spokesperson said.
“A short time later, police deployed road spikes at the intersection of Stony Creek Road and Eighth Avenue.
“The man allegedly continued driving for a short distance, entering Ropes Crossing where he crashed into two parked cars on Saltbush Court, and a letter box and tree in a front yard on Marshall Avenue.”
After coming to a stop, the man allegedly ran from the vehicle and was followed by the crew of PolAir 3 before being located behind a garbage bin in a driveway on Bluebell Crescent.
He was arrested by police with assistance from the Dog Unit and taken to Mt Druitt Police Station, where he was charged with ‘police pursuit – not stop – drive dangerously’, ‘drive motor vehicle during disqualification period’, two counts of ‘not give particulars to owner of damaged property’, and ‘goods suspected stolen in/on premises (not m/v)’.
He appeared in Parramatta Bail Court on Saturday, September 4, where he was formally refused bail to appear before Penrith Local Court today.
