Police have charged a man after he allegedly stole a vehicle from the Sunshine Coast and drove it to Caboolture.

At 8am today police patrols were alerted to a stolen black Audi S5 allegedly seen driving at high speeds throughout the Moreton area.

It will be alleged the vehicle was pursued southbound along Morayfield Road just before 10am where it mounted a roundabout and exited onto Uhlmann Road towards the Bruce Highway onramp.

At this time, police discontinued their pursuit of the vehicle after it allegedly went through a red light and Polair2 continued tracking the vehicle along the highway.

The Audi was followed to a private residence in Burkeley Court, Caboolture where a man was arrested without incident.

A 22-year-old man has been charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, evade police, burglary and possess dangerous drugs.

He is expected to front the Caboolture Magistrates Court tomorrow (January 12).

The vehicle is understood to have been stolen from a Maleny Stanley River Road address in Wootha within the Sunshine Coast hinterland just before 5pm yesterday afternoon.

Anyone with further vision or information about the incident is urged to contact police.
