A POLICE chase through the centre of Harvey has landed a 19-year-old Mandurah man in Bunbury Magistrates Court charged with numerous driving offences.

On Thursday, members of the community alerted Harvey police to a white Holden Berlina reported stolen from Mandurah, in Harvey.

The allegedly stolen car was spotted by police on Weir Road near the Harvey Dam about 2.20pm after which the driver allegedly attempted to evade them. The car was then pursued by police through and around the Harvey townsite, towards Yarloop along Government Road before heading towards Forrest Highway.

The police pursuit was then cancelled due to another chase starting up in the area.

The alleged driver was later found and arrested that night in Harvey.

He was charged with stealing a motor vehicle, reckless driving to escape, failing to stop for police, possession of drug paraphernalia, no authority to drive and fraudulently altering a licence plate.

He faced Bunbury Magistrates Court on August 4, was remanded into custody and is due to appear again on August 24.
