Four teens have been charged by Southern Metro Crime Team following an incident in Hallam, south-east of Melbourne on Wednesday (11 May 2022).
Police allege that six offenders were spotted in a stolen Jeep Cherokee around 9:20am on Frawley Road, before the car fled the area with police in pursuit.
A tyre deflation device was employed, resulting in the driver of the Jeep losing control of the vehicle and hitting a parked car and a tree before coming to a stop on the footpath.
Police arrested six youths over the incident a short time later, and four were charged.
A 15-year-old boy from Hallam, already on bail, was charged with theft of motor vehicle, dangerous driving whilst being pursued by police, driving in a dangerous manner, driving at a dangerous speed, unlicenced driving and committing an indictable offence while on bail.
A 14-year-old Hallam boy and a 16-year-old Narre Warren gild have also been charged with theft of a motor vehicle.
A 15-year-old Cranbourne South girl who was also on bail, was charged with theft of a motor vehicle and committing an indictable offence whilst on bail.
A 16-year-old Bayswater girl and a 14-year-old Springvale boy were released by police pending summons.
The four teens are due to appear at a children’s court at a later date.
