High performance audi stolen sydney thief evades police in chase
A Melbourne man has been caught stealing a stolen vehicle, leaving it in a ditch, in NSW's northern Sydney.
Key points: The stolen car was spotted on the side of the road, just outside the suburb of Monaro
No-one was hurt
Police found it in a ditch and arrested a man, who was wearing a white T-shirt, jeans and sandals
The car was stopped just outside the suburb of Monaro on Sunday morning, with police hoping he would be able to turn the stolen vehicle over.
But in a police interview today, he refused to answer any questions and did not explain why he had stolen the car â€” a 2007 blue Toyota Corolla.
In one version of events, he described himself as a middle-aged man, with a "small build", and said he did not feel he had to answer any more questions.
"I don't know that any police officer would've put their boots on me and forced me to answer any questions...and then if I did I would've had nothing to say," the man said.
"I've only been to NSW once in the last 10 years and this was the first time I have ever been stopped by police. It was bizarre, at first."
He admitted the vehicle had been stolen, saying he had been away on holiday.
"I've just got it in the hands of the dealer as I've got no business in the area," he said.
"If this guy hadn't put it in a ditch I would've had no choice but to surrender it.
"If I was a burglar... I would've found a way of stealing this vehicle without being caught."
Officers interviewed the man on Tuesday but in that interview he refused to give evidence and said he would prefer not to answer police questions.
He also refused to reveal how many kilometres he had driven or give details of his criminal history.
It is understood he had no previous convictions, and the man had been living in Monaro since 2007.
The car was reported stolen on May 22 in Monaro, NSW, and police are attempting to trace it.
They were contacted on Tuesday to check its status after being tipped off by a friend.
The woman who reported the stolen car said she saw two people get out of the car and her husband heard the crash and a crackle.
"He looked over at my husband and he said you can't be talking."

Chakvetadze claims second successive wta title, but this time it's not against him
Baku-born Sergin, 23, is the only other fighter to win two titles in four years
It's been nearly two years since former WTA No.1 Golovkin won his first title with an epic fight against Vitor Belfort at T-Mobile Arena, and although Sergey Kovalev was officially crowned WBA world champion, the sport still doesn't accept that there are any real champions in the sport.
And, yet, Sergin has been fighting ever since, and while he lost in his second title defence, he's also been consistently beating strong contenders every time they get close.
Having already claimed a No.1 WTA ranking for the first time in five years, Sergin could easily be the No.3 on the planet at this stage, but the Russian thinks it's time to take a big step up after another season at No. 10 on Saturday.
Sergin, who trains in Dubai alongside legendary British champion Gary Pallister, says this is his sixth consecutive title defence and it doesn't take much for him to move back up to become WTA No.2, although that doesn't guarantee the title title fight with Golovkin.
So what are some of the other options for Sergin, who said it takes him some eight or nine months before he can become the world number one?
"The best option would be to fight Andre Ward, who is a former WBC bantamweight] champion as well as being undefeated in the WTA over the last couple of years. But if you compare the WBA's champion Andre Ward to me you'll see why," he said. "Ward, while he had an outstanding year with one of the fastest horses in the world, is still in the WTA's Top 25.
"Even if the other top-level fighters are fighting to be No. 2, I think I'm in a pretty strong position. I'm just very much enjoying what I'm doing right now and the way the sport works and has matured in the last six months."
Sergin has been training in Dubai since his loss to Baze Correia in November 2011 and the only thing that stopped him from taking on the world number one spot was his father's health, although the young fighter still has a feeling that it will eventually be decided by results.
"Maybe it'll be three or four years, maybe it'll be two, maybe one year. You don't know what is going to happen," he admitted. "At the moment I do know when you're in the WTA - it's very, very clear in the WTA. I don't want the worl
