A 23-year-old man has pleaded guilty to a string of charges after leading police on a high-speed chase in Perth’s southern suburbs. Bailey David West appeared via video link before Rockingham Magistrates Court on Wednesday, December 14, charged with one count of stealing, reckless driving, possession of cannabis and drug paraphernalia, threat to unlawfully act, failure to stop and two counts of no authority to drive and breach of a family violence order. Prosecutor Sgt Scott Andrews told the court West was driving a silver Holden Commodore north along Parmelia Avenue in Parmelia on January 5 at about 7.20pm. At the same time police in a marked station wagon were driving in the opposite direction along Parmelia Avenue. They performed a U-turn in an attempt to stop the vehicle. West noticed the police were in pursuit and began to accelerate away at high speeds, reaching 130km/h in a 60km/h zone and driving on the wrong side of the road. Police activated their emergency lights and sirens. The pursuit carried on through to Thomas Road, with West maintaining speeds of 125km/h and the air wing also in pursuit. The chase ended when West hit a kerb on Patterson Road. He ran off to nearby bushland but was arrested by police. At the time of West’s arrest he had no license, 21 outstanding fines and was in possession of 1g of cannabis. West has been remanded to December 23 for sentencing.
