An unlicenced rider caught more than 100 kilometres over the speed limit has been sniffed out by police and charged over his alleged antics.
About 11.30am on Tuesday, Riverina Highway Patrol officers received information that a black motorcycle was detected allegedly travelling at 205km/h on the Hume Highway, and then the Olympic Highway at Table Top.
Police initiated a pursuit which was terminated soon afterwards due to safety concerns. The motorcycle was found abandoned a short time later in Wagga.
A search of the area with the assistance of the Dog Unit located the rider, who was arrested and taken to Wagga Police Station.
