Adam Groves arrested in Sunshine

THE man police wanted for driving at high speeds through Albury last week has been arrested in Melbourne.

Adam Troy Groves was nabbed in Sunshine and later appeared on a series of charges at the Sunshine Magistrates Court.

Groves allegedly sped through Albury on Friday and almost hit a pedestrian.

The car carried Queensland plates 348-TEK, but they were believed to be stolen from a hire car in Melbourne.

After yesterday’s hearing, police declined to comment on what charges he faced.

His last alleged offence was committed in Melbourne on Monday.

It is not known if an application has been made to extradite him to NSW over the matter in Albury.

Meanwhile, police did not enter into a high speed pursuit yesterday after a black Subaru was recorded at more than 150km/h on the Hume Freeway at Glenrowan about 8am.

Sgt Brian McCormick said the pursuit was deemed too dangerous to continue.

He said enquiries were ongoing and police would welcome any information..

It was the fifth high speed car to catch police attention locally in a fortnight.

In another case, a Wangaratta man will face court on June 30 after he allegedly fled police at more than 200km/h on the Hume Freeway on Friday afternoon.

The man, 27, allegedly drove a black Toyota Camry sedan erratically in Wangaratta.

Police chased him through North Wangaratta and on to the Hume Freeway before the man got away.

Police arrested the man at his home on Monday.

It is alleged the car was stolen and he still had it with him.

Last week a car was clocked at 50km/h over the speed limit on the Lincoln Causeway in Wodonga just after midnight.

Another incident involved speeds of 100km/h in Wangaratta at 11.45am that day.
