Jail for hoons who stole Porsche, rammed cops at Northland


Two men who used a stolen Porsche to ram police vehicles in a Melbourne shopping centre car park after a crime spree have been jailed.

Darcy McKay, 28, and Mark Gilbert, 29, also admitted stealing vehicles worth a combined $334,000 in the weeks before the ramming in April 2018.

McKay was driving the stolen Porsche when he sped through suburban streets in Greensborough, Preston and Bundoora at 130km/h to 150km/h.

The duo managed to escape police in the underground car park at Greensborough Plaza and narrowly avoided hitting an officer.
