A person has been arrested after a dramatic police chase through residential Tauranga today.

The arrest was made after a driver allegedly crashed into a parked car on a driveway in Gate Pa.

Western Bay of Plenty head of road policing Senior Sergeant Ian Campion confirmed police had been pursuing a car from State Highway 29 and on to Cameron Rd.

Mr Campion said officers lost sight of the car on Cameron Rd but police were called to reports of a crash in 22nd Ave shortly later.


"It appears a car has collided with a garage and vehicle on a private property," he said.

Mr Campion said there did not appear to be any injuries.
