Man steals four cars during 14-hour crime spree

A MAN remains on the run following a crime spree spanning Ipswich and Brisbane that involved the theft of at least four vehicles.

The drama began on Saturday night about 9.30pm when an Audi stolen from Stafford was involved in a crash on Livesay St, Moggill.

Police said a man and woman fled the scene of the crash and later approached a house on Jarrah St, Moggill, where they demanded keys while armed with a screwdriver.

Strangely, no vehicles were believed to have been stolen from the residence at the time.

The man was then spotted again at a residence in Ironbark Place, Bellbowrie, about 6.55am Sunday morning.

Police said he demanded the keys to a Porsche before driving off.

About 7.25am the man forced entry to a house on Cantwell St, Anstead, where he removed a plastic container while armed with a hammer, before fleeing in the stolen Porsche.

About 8.30am the man approached a house on Cadaga Cl, Bellbowrie, where he stole a white Volkswagen Tiguan.

The vehicle was then seen travelling along the Warrego Hwy near Ipswich.

Meanwhile, police located the stolen Porsche in Creswick Pl, Bellbowrie.

About 11am, police intercepted a stolen red Hyundai at Goodna. The driver ran off, but left behind property which police believe may identify him. The Hyundai was confirmed stolen from a holding yard on Turley St. The VW was later found dumped on Bishop St, Wulkuraka.

Ipswich police are assisting in the investigation, which is being run by the Indooroopilly CIB.
