IN PICTURES: Bushland arrest after police chase across Tweed

UPDATE:

A MAN who allegedly lead police on a motorbike chase before crashing and fleeing the scene on foot was later found to be carrying ammunition and weapons. 

About 12.15pm Thursday, Tweed/Byron Traffic and Highway Patrol officers tried to stop a Yamaha motorcycle travelling along Terranorra Rd, when it was detected to allegedly have incorrect number plates.  

Police initiated a pursuit when the motorcycle failed to stop.  

The motorcycle allegedly reached speeds of up to 120km/h in a signposted 60km/h zone.  

While travelling along Fraser Drive, the bike left the roadway, causing the rider, a 30-year-old Palmvale man, to fall off.   He then fled the scene on foot into nearby bushland, where he was arrested a short time later.  

Upon search of the man, police allegedly found ammunition and drugs.  

He was taken to Tweed Hospital for treatment of a leg injury where he remains under police guard.  

Once released, he will be taken back to Tweed Heads Police Station where charges are expected.
