TWO men who led police on a 430km high-speed chase in a series of stolen cars - passing through Naracoorte - will spend at least the next four years in jail.
Benjamin John Nona-Wilson, 21, and Andrew Max Moulden, 25, drove from Mount Gambier to Adelaide with police in pursuit in June, 2012.
They stole a vehicle at Mount Gambier, drove through Naracoorte, then stole further vehicles at Keith, Mount Barker and near Adelaide's toll gate on the South Eastern Freeway.
The duo pleaded guilty to offences including endangering life and aggravated counts of theft of motor vehicles and theft using force.
At the time of the offending, Nona-Wilson was on parole and Moulden was on bail.
In sentencing on Thursday, District Court Judge Gordon Barrett said the duo each had an extensive criminal history with Nona-Wilson's first offence dating back to when he was 11 years old.
"Despite there being some tentative signs of each of you thinking about staying out of trouble before this offending, this course of conduct shows that neither of you was really ready to make serious changes to your lives," he said.
