Thieves hit dead end during police chase

POLICE busted a trio of alleged thieves after pursuing a vehicle which was seen speeding through a red light early yesterday.

It is alleged the suspect vehicle turned down a dead-end street in an attempt to flee police, driving through one barbed wire fence before becoming caught up in a second one.

The pursuit followed a break and enter at an auto accessories store in Redbank Plains prior to 3am.

Police said the driver was arrested at the scene, however two other males jumped out of the vehicle and ran.

The dog squad was called in and two suspects were arrested a short time later.

A subsequent search of the vehicle allegedly revealed property which had been stolen from the auto store, in addition to items linked to a break and enter at a house in Mt Warren Park.

Stevan Joshua Jeffrey Munich, 20, was charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, entering a premises with intent to commit an indictable offence and possessing a thing used in the commission of a crime.

Michael John Sullivan, 19, was charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle, entering a premises with intent to commit an indictable offence and possessing a thing used in the commission of a crime.

The pair was also charged with an earlier burglary allegedly committed on Saturday.

Munich and Sullivan appeared in Ipswich Magistrates Court yesterday.

They made an application for bail which police formally opposed.

Magistrate Michael Quinn refused bail on the basis they were at risk of committing further offences and failing to appear in court.

They were remanded in custody and will next appear in court on March 6.

A child aged 16 was also charged with offences relating to yesterday's incident.
