Police seek driver of ute after Angaston burnouts

Barossa Police are investigating reports of a ute doing burnouts in Angaston on Saturday night.


At about 9.15 pm on Saturday, a white mid-90s Holden ute was seen doing burnouts next to a hotel in Murray Street near the drive-through bottle shop, before continuing out onto the street and heading west.


The male driver is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged in his early 20s with short dark hair and moustache, slim build and was wearing a baseball cap.



The ute (pictured) appears to only have the front left headlight working and it had no registration plates.


Chief Inspector Lauren Leverington, the officer in charge of the Barossa Local Service Area, says this kind of behaviour is an absolute disgrace.

"It's driving like this that endangers not only the person behind the wheel but other road users and pedestrians," said Leverington.
"It could have led to disaster if they were to lose control of the vehicle, particularly at a hotel where families and children might be having dinner".

Anyone with information that can assist police is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or online at www.crimestopperssa.com.au
