Police confirmed that the 16-year-old who evaded Police on a motorbike was caught and arrested.
He had been spotted on a motorbike at 10pm with no tail light but drove off to avoid Police.
Police say he drove at speed around Avatiu and Nikao before being apprehended at Panama. He was with a 14-year-old passenger.
Police spokesman Trevor Pitt said police were concerned over incidents of failure to stop as these motorists placed other lives at risk – not just their own.
