PD Jimmy gets his man!
Just before midnight on Wednesday 24 February 2016, Regional Investigations Unit officers sighted a stolen Ford Falcon utility in Parmelia.
It will be alleged they activated emergency lights and siren but the driver did not stop and attempted to evade police. The stolen vehicle travelled east on Bertram Road and onto the Kwinana Freeway.
A successful stinger deployment at the intersection of Challenger Ave and Bertram Road led to the vehicle stopping a short time later. The driver fled on foot into bushland.
Police Dog Jimmy tracked the man and located him hiding in bushland.
A 29 year old Parmelia man has been charged with Steal Motor Vehicle and Drive Recklessly; Reckless Driving; Fail to Stop and No Authority to Drive.
He is due to appear in the Rockingham Magistrates Court today, 25 February 2016.
