Alleged petrol thieves evaded police on Saturday night after speeding down the wrong side of the road on Bridge St, Benalla.
Benalla police Sergeant Harry Verbaken said a blue Mazda 3 was spotted doing a petrol drive-off at the Shell service station at 9.36
‘‘The police chased them down to the Mansfield Rd roundabout where they did a U-turn and came back into town,’’ Sgt Verbaken said.
‘‘When they got to about the bridge over the lake they went onto the wrong side of the road and travelled on the wrong side of the road at a high speed, so we terminated the pursuit for safety reasons.’’
Nobody was injured in the pursuit.
Sgt Verbaken said Benalla police believed the driver to be less than 25 years old, and the car appeared to have stolen number plates covering the original set.
Anyone with information is urged to phone Benalla police on 5760
