A witness told Newshub she saw the alleged offender “swerving across the motorway… crashing into the side of the motorway and clipping various cars”.

Police said no members of the public were injured in the incident. 
A spokesperson said the man initially fled police after an officer located a vehicle linked to a wanted man, just before 10am on Saturday. Shortly after the vehicle was found, the man was also located at an address in Kumeu. He then fled on foot before stealing a vehicle from a nearby property. 
Police monitored him from the Eagle helicopter while the man drove through west Auckland towards central Auckland.
“The vehicle came to a stop on the Khyber Pass off-ramp, where the offender attempted to steal a vehicle from a member of the public,” the spokesperson said.
“Police officers were quickly on the scene and took the offender into custody with the assistance of a second member of the public.”
