A man has been charged following a police pursuit through Ipswich overnight.

Police will allege, at approximately 9.15pm a black Mercedes bearing false number plates was sighted by Polair, driving dangerously and at high speed through Brisbane towards Ipswich.

Police on the ground successfully deployed a tyre deflation device on the Warrego Highway, Marburg at 9.50pm.

The vehicle continued to drive on the highway and police entered a pursuit that ended shortly after when the vehicle came to a stop as a result of the tyres disintegrating. The driver was arrested at the scene.

A 29-year-old Collingwood Park man has been charged with multiple dangerous driving, evasion and property offences. He is expected to appear before the Ipswich Magistrates Court on May 25.
