A wanted man is due to front court today (Friday 6 August, 2021) after he was arrested at Redhead overnight in an allegedly stolen car.

Police say the Mitsubishi Pajero was stolen from Cardiff 3 days ago and was spotted by an off-duty officer at Blacksmiths at about 6.00pm on Thursday.

The PolAir helicopter and a Police Dog tracked the car to Redhead Beach where a 44-year-old man was arrested.

It’s alleged he was also in possession of a small amount of Crystal Meth and stolen property.

He’s also wanted on 5 outstanding warrants and has been refused bail to face Belmont Court today.
