Three teenagers have been arrested this morning after leading police on a short pursuit around Hamilton.
The suspicious vehicle was seen at around 3am in the suburb of Melville.
Senior Sergeant Tina Shaw said the driver failed to remain stopped for police and the officer engaged a short pursuit.
Road spikes were laid on Peachgrove Road, which were successfully deployed a few minutes later.
The vehicle came to a stop, and the three occupants fled the car on foot.
Two boys, aged 14 and 15, and a 14 year old girl were shortly afterwards arrested by police.
