About the same time Nambour police sighted the stolen Volkswagen south of the interchange, which also failed to stop for police.
A 16-year-old Albany Creek boy, the alleged driver and sole occupant, was arrested by police after stingers were deployed on the highway south of the Red Road intersection.
The teenagers have been charged with three counts of burglary, two counts of unlawful use of a motor vehicle and one count each of attempted unlawful use of a motor vehicle and evade police.
Both of the drivers were also charged with unlicensed driving while disqualified.
