Police chases a plenty on the coast today

Following an earlier call out Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopters @Lifesaverhelo was back in the air assisting @nswpolice who are searching for a person who has evaded them after a police pursuit in the Batemans Bay area.

(Update from ABC South East NSW - a male and female)

Traffic on the Princes Highway came to a halt this afternoon as a car being pursued by police manged to find itself in a wide construction trench by the edge of the highway where crews are currently widening the highway just south of the old Batemans Bay saw mill.

The Beagle has been advised by witnesses that traffic was backed up to the south beyond the the Botanic Gardens and slowed dramatically under traffic controllers from the north.

Several police cars attended along with tow trucks and it is understood that the area was bought back to normal flow with limited delay.

Earlier today Batemans Bay police were involved in a chase up the Kings Highway

Inquiries are continuing to locate the driver of a car involved in a pursuit this morning on the NSW/ACT border.

Around 8.30am (Wednesday 22 May 2019), police on the Kings Highway near Braidwood saw a Holden Commodore that matched the description of a vehicle involved a fraud matter at a Bateman’s Bay service station earlier.

Officers signalled for the vehicle’s driver to stop. When the driver did not stop, a pursuit began.

As the cars reached the outskirts of Bungendore, the pursuit was terminated for safety reasons.

A description of the car was broadcast to ACT Police and surrounding local areas.

The red Commodore sedan, which does not have its front bumper, was later located in the ACT.

Police from Monaro Police District and Southern Region Highway Patrol are continuing their inquiries to locate the driver.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report crime via NSW Police social media pages.
