Koongamia man (36) dropped off daughter in middle of alleged high speed chase with police

A KOONGAMIA man (36) dropped off his daughter (8) while the Holden utility they were in was being chased by police from Belmont to St Vincent Road , Wembley about 10pm last Sunday

It will be alleged the utility failed to stop in Belmont, ran a red light on Roe Highway when initially being pursued, and avoided stinger tyre traps in Kings Park.

The man was able to avoid the pursuit long enough to drop off his daughter at a property on Lake Monger Drive, Wembley.

However, police caught up with the vehicle at St Vincent Road, where the man was arrested.

He was charged with failing to stop, two counts each of breach of bail and reckless driving, and having no driver’s licence.

He was remanded in custody to reappear at Perth Magistrates Court on July 31.
