A learner driver will face court today following a pursuit with police in Campbelltown last night.

Officers attached to Campbelltown City Police Area Command were patrolling around Ingleburn about 11.50pm (Tuesday, May 14), when they attempted to stop a Ford utility on Albert Street for an inoperative headlight.

When the Ford failed to stop as directed, a pursuit was initiated, travelling through Kings Road, where it was terminated due to safety concerns.

Further police personnel attended to assist and the vehicle was located by officers on Campbelltown Road shortly after.

The driver and sole occupant – a 32-year-old woman – was arrested at the scene.

She was subjected to roadside testing, allegedly returning a positive drug result.

Following search of the vehicle, police seized a drug implement and a number of plastic bags containing a substance alleged to be methylamphetamine.

The woman was taken to Campbelltown Police Station where she was charged.

The charges included police pursuit – not stop – drive recklessly, learner not accompanied by driver/police officer/tester and learner driver not display an L plate as prescribed.

She was refused bail to appear at Campbelltown Local Court today (Wednesday, May 15).
