A STOLEN car has been found burnt in Ainslie after being chased by police today (July 27).

In a statement, ACT Policing confirmed that two officers were chasing two vehicles suspected of being stolen and used in other crimes in various suburbs of Canberra.

Police say the chases have been halted due to public safety concerns.

Early this afternoon one of the vehicles was on fire in Ainslie. It is known that it was a white Toyota Camry stolen from Curtin this morning.

The fire was extinguished by ACT firefighters. No one would have been injured.

A number of Canberrans took to social media this afternoon about a white Camry being driven dangerously.

A Facebook user describes dangerous driving near Bruce Stadium this afternoon.

Police said reports of the shots were “inaccurate.”

Anyone with information about, or dashcam footage of, the chases is requested to contact Crime Stoppers at 1800 333000.
