The police helicopter tracked the Holden as it travelled on several suburban roads including Allnutt Drive, Park Road, Mandurah Terrace, Randle Street and Pinjarra Road.

The driver later abandoned the car on Old Pinjarra Road and was arrested shortly after.

The 43-year-old Mandurah man has been charged two counts of stealing a motor vehicle, two counts of no authority to drive, stealing, failing to stop, reckless driving, excess 0.02%, possessing drug paraphernalia and criminal damage.

He was refused bail and is due to appear in the Perth Magistrates Court today.
