POLICE have released footage of a dramatic car chase through suburban Perth last night.

About 7.55pm last night, detectives tried to stop a vehicle in Balga but the car accelerated and sped away.

Several police vehicles were deployed to the area, and a police helicopter attended and took over monitoring of the vehicle.

The car was abandoned in a car park at the intersection of Morley Drive and Wanneroo Road, Tuart Hill.

Four people exited the car and were then arrested.

A 17-year-old boy from Boulder, who it will be alleged was the driver of the vehicle, has been charged with failing to stop, reckless driving and having no authority to drive.

The boy was also charged with several offences not related to the incident last night.

He was refused bail and appeared in the Perth Children’s Court today.
