Southern Motorway Pursuit

Southern Motorway Pursuit

At approximately 1:30pm this afternoon two cars reported as stolen were sighted by Police in the Waikato District travelling in convoy. One of the vehicles pulled over for Police on its own accord at the bottom of the Bombay Hills. The other stolen vehicle continued on State Highway 1 towards Auckland.

The vehicle continued onto the Southern Motorway where the pursuit was abandoned due to the manner of their driving. The car however was located and followed by the Police Eagle helicopter as it headed towards Auckland City. After driving up Queen Street the driver let out 2 passengers who have since been apprehended.

The vehicle and its sole occupant then went back onto the Southern Motorway and headed south until exiting the motorway at Orams Road and abandoning the vehicle. The driver was located and arrested by Police.

7 juveniles have been arrested and will be referred to Manukau Youth Court.
