A TEENAGE boy has been charged after allegedly leading police on a short pursuit through Ashmont near Wagga Wagga this morning.
About 1:50am police were driving along Blakemore Street when they allegedly witnessed a white Holden Commodore being driven in an erratic manner.
Police attempted to pull the vehicle over, however, the driver refused to stop and a pursuit was initiated.
The Holden was followed through a number of streets before turning into Kerr Street where it mounted the footpath, crashed into a parked Nissan Navara and damaged a water meter.
A 15-year-old boy was arrested at the scene and allegedly found in possession of a Stanley knife.
Police will allege the Holden Commodore had been stolen during a break and enter at house in Ashmont minutes before the pursuit.
The teenage boy was taken to Wagga Wagga Police Station and charged with stealing from a house, take and drive conveyance, police pursuit-drive dangerously (Skye’s Law), being an unlicensed driver and custody of a knife in a public place.
He was granted conditional bail to appear in a children’s court on April 22.
