A Queanbeyan man who led police on a high-speed chase west of Nowra reaching speeds of 200 kilometres per hour has been jailed for three years.
Jeremy Scott Lindsay Mitchell, 25, will spend at least 20 months behind bars after pleading guilty to police pursuit, reckless driving, driving while disqualified and the illegal use of conveyance in Nowra Local Court on October 4.
Court papers said a Volkswagen Golf was seen by police allegedly driving in a dangerous manner east on the Kings Highway between Queanbeyan and Bungendore about 9.25am on August 15.
Police said checks revealed the car had been stolen during a carjacking in the ACT.

During the pursuit the vehicle reached speeds of 200km/h in a 100km/h zone.
A short time later road spikes were successfully deployed and stopped the vehicle at the intersection of Braidwood Road and Albatross Road at Nowra Hill.
