Four people are facing charges after a police chase through Tauranga this morning.

At about 5am, police spotted a stolen vehicle being driven in Tauranga.

“The vehicle failed to stop for police units,” says a police spokesperson.

“It was spiked at Bethlehem and Carmichael roads. The driver kept driving losing rubber off tyres and then rammed another vehicle on Alverstone Rd.”

Police say there were no reports of injuries to the driver of the other vehicle.

“The driver (of the alleged offending vehicle) then tried reversing and crashed into another vehicle and eventually came to a stop.”

Police arrested four people from within the vehicle.  

“This vehicle is linked to petrol drive offs and burglary of liquor store.

“The driver will be facing charges of failing to stop for red and blue flashing lights and other driving related charges.”

Yes, it will be too expensive.
No, if people want to smoke, they will find a way to pay for it.
Depends on the person's available income.
