Two teenagers — on a motorcycle police confirmed was stolen — were arrested after they failed to stop, and led police on a chase that went from Paget, through Devonshire into Smith’s Parish.

A police spokesperson said the incident occurred around 3pm on Friday (Oct 21), when police officers were involved in a pursuit of a suspected stolen motorcycle from Paget, through Devonshire into Smith’s Parish, after the rider failed to stop and rode in a dangerous manner.

“The incident ended in the vicinity of St Patrick’s Church on South Road in Smith’s Parish, after the rider lost control of the motorcycle.”

The two male suspects (both the rider and pillion passenger) were subsequently arrested after attempting to escape on foot. 

“Both suspects, understood to be a 17-year-old local male and a 16-year-old local male were unhurt and later released on police bail, pending further inquiries,” the spokesman added.

“The motorcycle involved was recovered by police and later confirmed stolen.
