A 17-year-old boy is due to face the Children’s Court today (Wednesday 21 July, 2021) following a pursuit at New Lambton Heights early this morning.

Patrolling police noticed a motorcycle being ridden erratically on Lookout Road just after 1.30am and began following the bike when it failed to stop.

The bike was dumped nearby and the rider and his pillion passenger took off.

Police established a perimeter and the 17-year-old passenger was arrested a short time later with the assistance of a police dog.

The rider is still on the run.

Checks confirmed the motorbike was reported stolen from Adamstown at the weekend.

The boy has been refused bail charged with being carried on a conveyance taken without consent and domestic matters.
