The younger boy was charged with police pursuit, drive conveyance, not stopping when directed and negligent driving.

One of the 16-year-olds was charged with being carried in a conveyance and possessing prohibited drug (cannabis). The other was charged with being carried in a conveyance.

They were refused bail to appear before Children's Court today.
