An 18-year-old boy, allegedly armed with a duffel bag full of weapons has been arrested following a dramatic police pursuit through Sydney’s southwest.

The teenager is accused of driving without tail lights before refusing to stop for police on Cooper St, Yagoona, just before midnight on Wednesday.

Officers alleged the driver continued down the Hume Highway, running a red light, prompting a police pursuit through the suburban streets.

The car eventually pulled over at Breasley Place before four people fled from the vehicle.

An 18-year-old man, who was carrying a duffel bag, was arrested after a short foot race.

Police searched the bag and allegedly found a 12-gauge sawn-off shotgun, ammunition, a machete and a knife.

The teenager was taken to Bankstown police station where he was charged with five offences, including possessing several weapons without authority or a permit and having custody of a knife in a public place.

The man, from Belfield, has been refused bail and will appear at Bankstown Local Court on Thursday.
