Youths arrested over stolen car

Four youths were arrested after a pursuit in a stolen car at Thevenard in the early hours of Monday morning.

A white Mitsubishi station wagon was stolen from the driveway of a Thevenard home at about 3.50am on Monday, February 12.

Police briefly pursued the stolen vehicle before it was abandoned and the suspects ran off.

Further inquiries and a search of the area led police to arrest the four youths around 7am on Monday.

Two 15-year-old boys, as well as a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old boy, all from the local area, were charged with a number of offences, including with illegal interference, illegal use, theft and driving dangerously to evade police.

The quartet were bailed to appear in the Ceduna Youth Court in May.
