Dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, Eight Mile Plains

Three teenagers have been charged after a stolen vehicle was allegedly driven at high speed along the Gateway Motorway last night.

Around 9.45pm POLAIR began tracking an alleged stolen car travelling northbound along the Gateway at Rochedale.

Police set up tyre deflation devices and stopped traffic on the Gateway after POLAIR observed the stolen car travelling the wrong way at high speed down the Logan Road off ramp towards oncoming vehicles.

The car continued to travel southbound in the northbound lanes of the Gateway Motorway for a number of kilometres before turning around.

Tyre deflation devices were successfully deployed on the Gateway northbound at Eight Mile Plains and police continued to follow the damaged vehicle at a low speed.

The car then collided with a police vehicle that had been positioned there to slow it down, causing minor damage.

Three boys were arrested and taken into custody at the scene.

A 15-year-old Algester boy has been charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, failure to stop, burglary, receiving tainted property and stealing

A 16-year-old Eagleby boy has been charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle, stealing

A 16-year-old Strathpine boy has been charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle
