Stirling Times - - Great Outdoors -

PO­LICE charged four peo­ple over a dra­matic car chase last week that ended in a crash that brought the Mitchell Free­way to a stand­still.

At about 11.25am, po­lice saw a stolen Toyota Kluger ve­hi­cle on Fer­gu­son Street in Mid­vale.

The Kluger had been stolen from Kingsway City Shop­ping Cen­tre in Made­ley on Fri­day.

Po­lice at­tempted to stop the ve­hi­cle and it is al­leged the driver failed to stop and a pur­suit com­menced, last­ing for about 30 min­utes. Po­lice aborted fol­low­ing the ve­hi­cle when it drove on the wrong side of the Mitchell Free­way.

Just af­ter noon on June 19, the Toyota Kluger col­lided with a BMW sedan on the Mitchell Free­way in Stir­ling and was forced to stop.

It is fur­ther al­leged the driver of the ve­hi­cle who was armed with a firearm ran from the ve­hi­cle.

He was ap­pre­hended by po­lice a short dis­tance away.
