Teens arrested after dramatic police pursuit ends on West Gate Bridge

Three teenagers have been charged over a dramatic two-hour police pursuit that ended on the West Gate Bridge during peak hour.

The chase began after a green sedan was spotted speeding toward Werribee on Monday afternoon.

The driver eventually stopped on top of the bridge, where police swarmed the vehicle after blocking all city-bound lanes of the bridge.

Three males – two 17-year-olds from Cranbourne North and an 18-year-old Hampton Park man – have been charged with theft of a motor vehicle, reckless conduct, armed robbery and burglary.

The trio allegedly broke into a jewellery store in Lalor while armed with weapons at around 2pm on Monday.

Police believe the same men were involved in an attempted armed robbery of a tobacconist in Preston half an hour later.

They’ve all been remanded in custody.
