Teen's bail rejected in court today
FOUR juveniles linked to a dramatic a car theft and police chase appeared in Dalby Magistrates Court this morning, charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle, stealing, and evading police.
Officer in Charge at Dalby Police Station Terry McCullough told the Dalby Herald the youths, aged 14 and 15, will receive varying degrees of punishment for their involvement in the 200km chase between Toowoomba to Miles.
"They were caught in Miles and brought out to Dalby," Senior Sergeant McCullough said.
"One of them who only had a minor involvement was bailed yesterday, he jumped out in Dalby and was caught."
The boys allegedly broke into a Toowoomba retirement village in the early hours of Thursday morning before stealing a car.
The vehicle was seen speeding through Dalby shortly before it was stopped by stingers deployed by police in Miles.
Snr Sgt McCullough said the the 15-year-old "leader" of the group will be heard separately from his accomplices.
"One of them who had a bit more involvement will appear in Children's Court next Thursday, and has been remanded in custody in Toowoomba," he said.
"He will be in Brisbane by tonight."
Two of the other teenagers were given bail in court today and will have their case heard at a later date.
