Two youths were due to face court today following after they were allegedly involved in a pursuit with police in the early hours of Thursday morning.

"About 2.45am today (Thursday September 7, 2023), officers attached to Central west Police District were patrolling Cargo Road, Cargo, 35km southwest of Orange, when they sighted a Nissan Tiida – reportedly stolen from a home in Cowra overnight - driving in excess of the sign posted speed limit," NSW Police stated.

"Police attempted to stop the Nissan; however, it failed to stop, and a pursuit was initiated, travelling into Orange and through local streets before stopping outside the police station, where the occupants – four teenage boys – were arrested."

Police said the boys were taken to Orange Police Station.

"A 17-year-old boy was charged with take and drive conveyance without consent of owner, police pursuit - not stop - drive dangerously and never licensed person drive vehicle on road," police said.

A 16-year-old boy was charged with be carried in conveyance taken without consent of owner, intimidate police officer in execution of duty without actual bodily harm and breach of bail."

The two boys were refused bail to appear at a children’s court today.

Two boys, aged 14, were later released pending further inquiries.
