Man goes on rampage with tank in suburbs

‘A man has been arrested after an armoured personnel carrier (APC) was taken on a rampage in Sydney’s western suburbs.

Mt Druitt police on patrol discovered the armoured vehicle destroying an electricity substation in Sterling Road, Minchinbury, at about 2am (AEST) today.

They followed the APC through several suburbs, including Mt Druitt, Dharruk, Emerton, Glendenning and Plumpton.

The APC left a path of destruction, bringing down a number of mobile phone towers and relay sheds, police said.

The pursuit ended in Dean Park after about 90 minutes, when the vehicle stalled as it was being driven towards another mobile phone tower.’
