Public Order Response Team (PORT) members have left no stone unturned after a motorcyclist evaded police on Tuesday.

Officers were patrolling Derrimut Road, Hoppers Crossing about 1.40pm on 19 May when they observed a motorcycle travelling in excess 100km/h in a 70km/h zone.

Police pulled up to the motorcyclist and directed him to pull over but the rider sped off and allegedly crashed a red light at Heaths road, narrowly avoiding being hit by crossing traffic.


Enquiries by PORT officers lead to them executing a warrant on Wednesday night at a Werribee address.

Members located several prohibited weapons and a Go Pro camera.

On Thursday night, police arrested a 20-year-old Hoppers Crossing man.

He has been interviewed and charged with reckless conduct endangering life, speed dangerous, manner dangerous and numerous other traffic related offences.

He has been bailed to appear at the Werribee Magistrates’ Court on 31 August.

Anyone who witnessed the incident or who has dash-cam footage is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
