An unlicensed teenager has been charged with multiple offences after he allegedly broke into a home in Stanwell Park overnight, stealing Toyota Prado.
The vehicle, which police say was being driven by the 17 year old boy, was tracked by Polair as it travelled south, before coming to a stop on Hunter Street in Barrack Heights.
Officers from Lake Illawarra Police District attempted to speak with the teen but they say he refused to get out of the car before driving through the fences of four nearby properties and coming to rest against a tree in the backyard of a home on Denison Street.
The teen attempted to run from the scene. He was arrested a short time later, before being taken to Lake Illawarra Police Station where he was charged with aggravated break and enter, goods in custody, take and drive conveyance without consent, steal motor vehicle, unlicensed driver (never held), trespassing and dangerous driving.
