Police chase along Cameron Road

A police chase along one of Tauranga's busiest roads has ended this afternoon with the driver in custody.

A police spokesperson says the pursuit began after the driver of the vehicle failed to stop for police.

Spikes were deployed to stop the vehicle, which was observed travelling along Cameron Road towards the CBD, before doing a U-turn and heading back towards Greerton.

The driver was eventually stopped when caught up in traffic, and ended up in an alleyway behind the dtr store.

Police at the scene say one male in his mid-20s was taken into custody.

They note the driving was 'very dangerous'.
