Two in custody after police pursuit through South Burnett

A 20-YEAR-OLD Blackbutt North man and 27-year-old Chinchilla man have been taken into custody following the pursuit of a stolen vehicle through the region on Monday.

The duo are assisting police after allegedly stealing a Hilux from the Coffee Club in Chinchilla at 5.35am on Monday.

A Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said the vehicle was seen on CCTV at a Kumbia service station at 1pm.

It then travelled at speed towards Maidenwell before it was stopped by stingers in Maidenwell.

The offenders allegedly continued to drive for two kilometres with two shredded tyres.

The QPS spokeswoman said the dog squad was deployed when the offenders took off on foot through a paddock.

One man was then taken into custody, while the other was taken into custody following a later incident in Blackbutt.

Investigations are continuing.
