A Sydney man, who is not allowed to drive for another 50 years, has been charged after leading a specialist police bikie squad on a pursuit through Sydney south west yesterday.

Officers from Strike Force Raptor Highway Patrol were patrolling in Greenacre yesterday afternoon when they spotted a suspicious vehicle.

Police discovered the Holden Commodore sedan was displaying stolen numberplates, and attempted to pull the vehicle over.

The vehicle failed to stop and a pursuit was initiated by officers.

A short time later the driver of the Commodore, a 47-year-old man from Caringbah, ran from the vehicle on Chapel Road in Bankstown.

Officers arrested the man nearby, and a check of the man’s licence revealed he was disqualified from driving until 2069.

He was taken to Bankstown Police Station and hit with a number of charges including driving when disqualified and resisting an officer in execution of duty.

The man was refused bail and is due to appear in court today.
