The incident, which unfolded on Saturday, began when police first spotted the allegedly stolen vehicle in Logan. The chase then led through Mount Gravatt before continuing south along the M1 towards the Gold Coast.

Gold Coast Chief Superintendent Craig Hanlon reported that after passing through Mount Gravatt, the vehicle’s speed became too dangerous for direct police intervention on the motorway.

“It was too risky to interact with the vehicle,” Supt Hanlon stated, underscoring the potential danger to Mount Gravatt and surrounding communities had the pursuit continued in built-up areas.

The chase concluded on the Gold Coast when police successfully deployed a tyre deflation device near the Nerang Broadbeach Road exit.

Four suspects – two men aged 20 and 18, and two women aged 20 and 18 – were subsequently arrested and charged with various offences including unlawful use of a motor vehicle.
