Young teens 'drove dangerously' in stolen car, say police

A DANGEROUS lunchtime lark has ended with three boys in the sights of police, after they stole a car then attempted to escape from authorities.

Police allege three boys were in a stolen car "driving dangerously" through Logan and South Brisbane on Monday afternoon.

Police say at 12.30pm the stolen vehicle was sighted on Hickory Street at Crestmead before it evaded police and travelled at high speed.

Police did not pursue the vehicle, however, its helicopter Polair tracked it from above and coordinated with officers on the ground.

The vehicle continued to be driven dangerously, travelling through red lights, on the wrong side of the road and at one stage onto a footpath.

It was driven at high speed on the Logan and Ipswich motorways before being tracked to Parkinson where police successfully deployed a tyre deflation device on Wallum Drive.

Two boys aged 14 and a 16-year-old boy were taken into custody without incident.

Investigations are continuing.
