A 26-year-old man allegedly led police on a chase that reached speeds of about 140km/h along streets in suburban Albany on Easter Monday.

Police will allege the chase started on Princess Royal Drive, about 2.10pm.

Officers said the driver in a black Holden Commodore failed to stop when signalled.

The driver turned his vehicle on to Hanrahan Road, before stopping and surrendering just before Cuming Road several minutes later.

The man was arrested and charged with reckless driving to escape police pursuit and no authority to drive.

He will face Albany Magistrate’s Court on April 23.

Albany detectives wish to speak to anyone who was travelling along that stretch of road at that time or who has dash-cam footage.

Phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
