Police are looking to locate the driver of a car involved in a pursuit this morning on the NSW/ACT border.

At around 8:30 am (May 22) police on the Kings Highway near Braidwood saw a Holden Commodore that matched the description of a vehicle involved a fraud matter at a Bateman’s Bay service station earlier.

Officers signalled for the vehicle’s driver to stop. When the driver did not stop, a pursuit began.

As the cars reached the outskirts of Bungendore, the pursuit was terminated for safety reasons.

A description of the car was broadcast to ACT Police and surrounding local areas.

The red Commodore sedan, which does not have its front bumper, was later located in the ACT.

Police from Monaro Police District and Southern Region Highway Patrol are continuing their inquiries to locate the driver, with the Westpac Lifesaver Helicopter brought into the search this evening.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers – 1800 333 000.
