$2 Theft Turns Into Police Chase As Man Goes On The Run
A man who rammed a car into a Tasmanian police station had minutes earlier stolen a $2 lolly from a petrol station across the road.
Police are hunting for the man who smashed the Glenorchy police station's glass sliding doors when he reversed his car into the front reception area just before 5.40am on Thursday.
Acting Inspector Julien Puurand said it seemed to be an impulse attack and was not targeted.
"It seems to be an unfortunate incident involving someone, for whatever reason, on impulse committed a minor stealing matter at a service station," Act Insp Puurand told reporters.
