by | Jul 3, 2024 | Crime | 0 comments

A man will face court later this month charged following a pursuit through Armidale on Monday afternoon.

Armidale Highway Patrol were patrolling Niagara Street, just after 1:30pm when they sighted a silver Hyundai I30 being driven by a man known to police.

Officers attempted to stop the car, and when it allegedly failed to stop, a pursuit was initiated which was terminated before entering the township of Bundarra.

A short time later, police located the car on the side of the road about 10km north of Bundarra, where they arrested a man.

During a search of the car, police allegedly located and seized, two large hunting knives, and a machete.

The 19-year-old male driver was taken to Inverell Police Station and charged with never licensed person drive vehicle on road, police pursuit – not stop – drive at speed, custody of knife in public place, and drive vehicle, illicit drug present in blood as well as four domestic violence-related offences relating to incidents in Moree in February and March this year.

The Armidale man was refused bail and attended Moree Local Court yesterday where he was given conditional bail to appear at Armidale Local Court on Monday 15 July 2024.
