Thief abandons burning BMW
A STOLEN BMW was left burning in Wembley Downs after it reached speeds of 120km/h when chased by police about 10am on September 16.
The car had been stolen during a Victoria Park burglary earlier that day.
It was seen by police in Newborough Road, Doubleview before speeding off and evading officers through Scarborough, Woodlands and Wembley Downs. Police then called off their pursuit.
At 10.35pm, the car was reported alight at the intersection of Glenelg Avenue and Dunrossell Place in Wembley Downs and while the suspected car thief was seen in the area, he ran off before police arrived.
