TWO Border teenagers have been arrested after leading police on a dangerous chase through Ashmont.
At 8.15am on Friday morning, highway patrol pursued a Holden Commodore reported stolen from Culcairn through Ashmont.
The chase was terminated shortly after it began for safety reasons.
The same car was later sighted throwing an object out of the vehicle in north Wagga.
“That object narrowly missed a member of the public,” Acting inspector Ryan Sheaff said.
Police spotted the teens again in Ashmont at 9.30am.
They were pursued for a short distance on Dobney Avenue, before the car ran up the gutter and its four passengers escaped on foot, acting inspector Sheaff said.
Two 15-year-olds from Wodonga and Lavington were stopped and arrested by police.
The car’s other passengers still remain at large.
A car reported stolen from Wodonga was also found alight in a Wagga reserve on Friday morning.
Police are investigating the cause of the blaze and whether the two incidents are linked.
Acting inspector Sheaff said police from Wodonga were travelling to Wagga to interview the pair on Friday afternoon, who are also suspected to be involved in a string of break-ins in Wodonga.
