The car continued to drive through fences of four properties before coming to rest against a tree in the backyard of a home.
The teen attempted to flee on foot and was arrested a short time later, before being taken to Lake Illawarra Police Station and charged with aggravated break and enter, goods in custody, take and drive conveyance without consent, steal motor vehicle, unlicensed driver (never held), trespassing and dangerous driving.
He was refused bail and is due to appear in a children’s court today.
