Pair front court after backyard chase in Echuca

Two men who allegedly took police on a chase through the backyards of Echuca yesterday have been remanded in the Bendigo Magistrates Court.

Trent Harrison, 21, and Thomas Johnson, 20, were wanted on several warrants.

Johnson faces charges of unlicensed driving, intentionally damaging property, aggravated burglary, recklessly causing injury and breaching a community corrections order. Harrison faces charges of intentionally damaging property, intentionally causing injury and two counts of recklessly causing injury.

The pair were arrested at a house in Ogilvie Avenue just after 11am yesterday, after allegedly evading police, and were taken to court in Bendigo about 3pm.

Lawyer Hannah Wilson, acting for both the men, said neither of her clients were seeking bail.

“The Aboriginal Legal Service is coming to Bendigo tomorrow and will be able to attend to the matter then,” she said.

Magistrate Bruce Cottrill remanded Johnson and Harrison to the same court today.
