A CARRUM Downs man has been remanded to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court after allegedly ramming a police car in a stolen Ford Mustang sports car early Saturday morning, 20 August.
The 24-year-old will face charges of burglary, car theft, key theft, dangerous and careless driving, reckless endangerment, possessing drugs and possessing the proceeds of crime.
The Mustang was one of seven cars stolen from the Wignall Ford Frankston dealership, Overton Rd, around 3.30am that day. Police will allege the offenders used a crow bar to jemmy open the key safe before stealing the Mustang, three Territory SUVs, two G6E sedans and a Ranger.
One of the cars was found burnt out in Hillcrest Av, Frankston, while two were recovered in Seaford and a fourth at Lynbrook.
Police were still looking for two Territories and a Ranger on Monday morning.
Later on the Saturday police were called to apprehend a Mustang being driven erratically in Narre Warren South. They managed to hem the car in when it became stuck in traffic at Lyndhurst, with the driver allegedly ramming the police car in a foiled escape bid.
The court date has yet to be fixed.
