A TEENAGER has been arrested on multiple charges, including breaking and entering and dangerous driving, after a two-week investigation involving Polair and three stolen cars.

The 19-year-old woman appeared in court on July 1 and was remanded in custody. She will appear again on July 28.

Her charges include two counts of breaking and entering, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, dangerous driving and unlicensed driving.

A police spokesman said a Ford Mondeo was reported stolen from a Wynyard Street address on June 15.

Two days later, police attended a Birkdale address and saw the Ford. Officers said the woman fled the scene in the stolen car.

Shortly after midday on Tuesday, June 30, the woman was approached by police at the Wellington Point BP service station on Main Road.

Police said she was driving a Holden Trax, allegedly stolen from a Russell Street, Cleveland address two days earlier.

They allege the woman crashed the car into two police vehicles before fleeing.

Police, including Polair, tracked the car before arresting the woman at Denison Court, Capalaba, about 3pm.

She was also charged in relation to the alleged theft of a Subaru Liberty.

The spokesman said a male passenger who was reportedly with the woman at the BP was not charged.
