Motorcycle Hoon in Hills Charged with Raft of Offences


A Mount Barker teenager will face court on several charges following a high speed chase through the Adelaide Hills.

A witness claims the teenager on a motorcycle pulled up to his car on Friday 9 March 2019 around 1pm and smashed his window before speeding off.

Police were able to track down the bike to Echunga where they allegedly found several items including an expandable baton.

Officers arrested the 19-year-old and charged him with riding an unregistered and uninsured motorcycle, riding while disqualified, endangering life and for the possession of a prohibited weapon.

A 51- year woman from Mt Barker was also arrested for assisting the man. Both have been bailed to appear in the Mt Barker Magistrates Court on 1 May 2019.

Police ask anyone with information or footage of the incidents to contact please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
