Two men have been arrested in Remuera after driving at high speed and in a dangerous manner around Eastern Auckland for about 25 minutes this evening.
At about 7pm a Police motorway patrol sighted a stolen car wanted in connection with a robbery at a South Auckland Dairy travelling on the Southern motorway. The car fled from the officer and left the motorway at Mount Wellington.

The pursuit was abandoned by ground units within a few minutes when the car was driven at very high speed and in an erratic and dangerous manner.

The Police helicopter Eagle was able to keep the car in sight as it drove around Mount Wellington, Panmure, Glen Innes, and Remuera for about 25 minutes. The car was eventually dumped in the Remuera area and the two occupants ran away on foot. They were arrested a few minutes later by Police ground units.
