Po­lice have charged a 31-year-old Beck­en­ham man af­ter he evaded po­lice on Novem­ber 2. Po­lice say they tried to stop the man’s Holden Ac­claim on Kala­munda Road, High Wy­combe, at 9.50pm but he failed to stop. They lost sight of the car but saw it again later on Ridge Hill Road, Goose­berry Hill. When po­lice went to talk to the man he drove off, lead­ing them through Goose­berry Hill, He­lena Val­ley and Mid­land be­fore he was stopped by a tyre de­fla­tion de­vice in Belle­vue. The driver ran away but was ar­rested shortly af­ter. Po­lice seized an axe un­der the driver’s seat. They said the 31-year-old fe­male pas­sen­ger also had her four-year-old son un­re­strained on her lap in the car. The man has been charged with of­fences, in­clud­ing reck­less driv­ing to es­cape pur­suit by po­lice, pos­sess­ing a pro­hib­ited drug and car­ry­ing an ar­ti­cle with the in­tent to cause fear.
