A teenager has been charged and another is on the run after a car was stolen from Mount Hutton yesterday.
It’s believed a Ford Mondeo was stolen from the driveway of the property around 5:30pm.
Police were patrolling along the Newcastle Inner City Bypass near Windale just before 1:30am this morning where they spotted the car which allegedly sped away.
Officers spotted the car again on Lake Street around 20 minutes later and caught up with the car when it mounted the gutter and hit a wall on South Street.
It’s alleged the two teenagers fled the scene, however officers managed to arrest a 15-year-old girl.
She was charged with take and drive conveyance, not stop vehicle when directed, never licensed person drive vehicle and negligent driving.
The girl’s been granted conditional bail and will front Children’s Court later this month.
Police are still on the hunt for the other teenager who allegedly fled the scene.
Anyone with information about the second teen involved should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
