It’s understood police have been tracking the stolen car for two days with those inside the car livestreaming their antics.
A police vehicle was damaged while trying to stop the Mercedes Benz earlier on Tuesday morning.
‘The vehicle has been linked to several property related offenses around the Brisbane and Ipswich areas since it was stolen from a Dinmore address on September 18,’ a police spokesperson said.
No one has been injured and police investigations are continuing.
There are fears more youths who were inside the car are still on the run.
