Police have released footage of a luxury car crashing into a service station in Queensland.
An 18-year-old man has been arrested and charged with six crimes after a four-hour trip to the Gold Coast on Monday.
Police say the man stole a white Mercedes-Benz station wagon – worth about $ 50,000 – from a house in Nerangi at 2:10 p.m., and smashed it against the glass door of a service station on Alexander Drive in Highland Park at 4:30 p.m.
Just 10 minutes later, the same car was allegedly involved in a collision after hitting another car on the Aurora-Crescent in Varangari.
Despite the fact that no one was injured in the accident, the driver is believed to have left at an unusually high speed and at 17:00 crashed into the garage door of the house Tristiania Way.
Police say a luxury car crashed into a parked car.
They say the man fled the scene before threatening the Southport couple to get out of the car.
The couple refused to give up their car, forcing the man to return to his allegedly stolen car.
The “Mercedes” was later dumped on Hanlan Street in Surfers Paradise.
Using several police units and a film camera, authorities tracked down the man and arrested him on Surfers Paradise Boulevard at 6 p.m.
A man from Highland Park has been charged with numerous offenses, including dangerous driving, drunk driving and attempted robbery.
He is due to appear in court on Tuesday.
