About 11.40am on Saturday, it's alleged a man crashed a Holden Commodore sedan, reported stolen from Queensland, at Buladelah.
The man allegedly then stole a Holden Commodore utility from a nearby carpark, before stopping at a service station in Nabiac.
The man refilled the vehicle with petrol before allegedly leaving the service station without paying.
Officers from Manning/Great Lakes spotted the vehicle travelling north on the M1 Pacific Highway at Coopernook, allegedly driving in excess of 200km/h.
That prompted a pursuit, but it was terminated shortly after due to safety concerns.
Following, the vehicle failed to negotiate a roundabout on Nancy Bird Walton Drive at Kew and crashed.
A 19-year-old man was arrested and taken to Port Macquarie Police Station where he was charged with nine offences, including:
- receive property stolen outside NSW;
