The Queensland police have arrested a 21 years old man for alleged dangerous driving

A 21-year-old man has been charged with 107 offences following an extensive investigation into alleged hoon activity in the Lockyer Valley area. On February 18, Laidley police intercepted a vehicle on Caleys Court at Lockrose at approximately 11.30 am.
It is alleged the Ford Falcon was defective, unregistered, uninsured, and had been linked to various active investigations into dangerous driving offenses between February 7 and February 18 in the Darling Downs district.

The 21-year-old alleged driver was charged with several offenses, and his mobile phone was seized for further investigations. Following the analysis of the phone and further inquiries into social media footage and information provided by members of the public, on the afternoon of March 1, the 21-year-old Lockrose man was taken into custody.

He has been charged in total with 107 offenses, including 23 counts of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, 25 counts each of unregistered vehicle, uninsured vehicle, and defective vehicle, seven counts of supplying dangerous drugs, and one count each of possessing anything used in the commission of a crime and driving while using a mobile phone.

The man is expected to appear before Gatton Magistrates Court on April 24. Officer in Charge of Laidley Police Station, Acting Senior Sergeant Damian van den Berg, said the arrest is the culmination of extensive efforts by investigators.

“This result is an example of Queensland Police Service’s dedication to ensuring our roadways are safe for all users,” Acting Senior Sergeant Van den Berg said. “Intentionally driving an unsafe vehicle in a dangerous manner on public roads is not only putting the lives of the driver and passengers on the line but innocent members of the public.”

Investigations remain ongoing, and police appeal to anyone with information in relation to dangerous driving offenses to come forward.
