Police dogs nab driver
A DRIVER who led police on a chase through the Adelaide Hills in a stolen ute was arrested yesterday – taken down by police dogs in a paddock.
The chase started when a patrol spotted a stolen white Mitsubishi ute on Oaklands Rd, Oaklands Park, just after 4.30am. They tried to stop the car but it accelerated through a red light and the pursuit was called off for safety reasons.
Soon after, another patrol tailed the ute through Upper Sturt and Crafers to the South Eastern Freeway.
It was spiked on Mt Barker Rd, Totness, but the offender continued driving to Littlehampton where it ran over more spikes on Bald Hills Rd.
He fled on foot but was found by police dogs Ruger and Zac about 6.30am.
