The car was eventually spiked on Bridge Road at Gulfview Heights before stopping on McIntyre Road where three men were detained.

The 27-year-old driver from Royal Park and his two passengers, aged 33 and 30 from Elizabeth South and Davoren Park respectively, were arrested.

All three men have been charged with illegal use, while the driver was also slapped with driving dangerously to escape police pursuit and driving while disqualified.

Police bail was granted, with the brazen thieves set to front the Elizabeth Magistrates Court at later date.

Further investigations determined that the stolen VW was from a Royal Park property earlier that evening, while the plates had been stolen from a Somerton Park property earlier this week.
