Police chase teen remanded in custody
The teenager allegedly involved in a dramatic car chase through Palmerston North will be spending time in prison while he awaits his fate.
Dyllan Barry Vaughan, 17, appeared in the Palmerston North District Court on Saturday in relation to his involvement in a car chase across the central North Island on Thursday.
He is charged with dangerous driving, failing to stop for police, unlawfully getting into a motor vehicle and two counts of theft.
He is alleged to have stolen $105.13 of petrol from Gull Tremaine in Palmerston North, and a further $53.23 worth of petrol from Mobil in Bulls.
The motor vehicle was a Subaru Legacy, which was stolen from Taupo and collided with another vehicle outside Pak 'n Save in Palmerston North on Thursday.
Justice of the Peace Doug Coles remanded Vaughan in custody until November 14, and ordered that he be kept apart from other male prisoners, because of his age.
The second man arrested in relation to the chase, 27-year-old Simon Woodward, has already appeared in court.
