Sunday Mail - - NEWS -

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.
