A LAKELANDS man has been charged with reckless driving to escape pursuit by police after a chase last night.

Shortly after midnight, police saw a stolen Suzuki sedan, allegedly with false plates, travelling in an easterly direction on Eacott Street, Mandurah.

Police claim the Suzuki failed to stop and police followed the vehicle.

It will be alleged the Suzuki travelled at 150kph and went to the wrong side of the road.

The Police helicopter continued surveillance of the Suzuki for about 30 minutes until it was abandoned in Lakelands.

The single male occupant ran from the vehicle into a house, from where he was apprehended by police.

A 38-year-old Lakelands man has since been charged with Reckless Driving to Escape Pursuit by Police.
