A car chase through Mitcham wasn't all police had to deal with the day after Halloween.

On Thursday, a car failed to stop when asked by police and eventually crashed in Lavender Avenue.

The driver then fled on foot but officers were up to the task who managed to detain him.

Officers found this after a search of the car

He was arrested for possession of cannabis, drug driving as well as failing to stop.

To top it all off, the car wasn't insured either.

Also in the car was a distinct balaclava (pictured above).
