'Mercedes Mum' who led cops on high-speed chase now asks public for money to fund her luxurious lifestyle
The 27-year-old has always flaunted her designer clothes, luxury cars and frequent trips to casinos on social media, which have in turn, garnered her a wide online following
A woman who allegedly took police on a wild goose chase for 10 kilometres (6.2 miles) while reaching speeds of up to 200km/hr (124 miles/hr) in her Mercedes car while her toddler daughter sat unrestrained next to her during the chase, is now desperately asking people for money to fund her lifestyle.
Margarita Tomovska, who's now better known as the "Mercedes Mum", earned the nickname for herself after appearing at court over the alleged pursuit in her $260,000 luxury car. She attracted a lot of attention when she came to court dressed in a figure-hugging Balmain dress worth $2,400, and Christian Louboutin shoes, along with jeweled Gucci sunglasses, which retail for $1,725.
The 27-year-old has always flaunted her designer clothes, luxury cars and frequent trips to casinos on social media, which have, in turn, garnered her a wide online following. However, she is now using the same platform to beg for money to fund her lifestyle, claiming harassment from Raptor.
The New South Wales Police strike force which has been targeting bikies and related criminal activity, have reportedly stopped Tomovska from getting a job, she has claimed. "I know you all don't know me but I'm actually not a bad person," she wrote on a GoFundMe page set up on Thursday, May 30, night.
She continued to explain her predicament: "These dogs are liers [sic] and have something against me for no reason as I’m sure I’m not the only one. They have made it very hard for me to maintain a job as no one would hire me due to the bullsh** from raptor and ACA combined."
Tomovska concluded her plea to the public with the words, "So I created this GoFund me to raise some support against the bullsh** that they have done to me and everyone else. It’s about time we fight back. Enough is enough! Thank you in advance for your support."
The mother-of-one further encouraged followers to support her by sharing the link on her Instagram story. During the November 13 alleged pursuit on the Princes Highway in Helensburgh, police officials reported that Tomovska reached speeds of more than 200km/h. When she finally stopped, she and her male passenger were arrested.
Officers allegedly found an unrestrained three-year-old girl in the back seat, who wasn't hurt but was in a distressed state and officers had to help calm her down. The man was released eventually, but Tomovska had her license suspended, and the case is set to return to court in August. Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for NSW Police said Tomovska has never been investigated by strike force Raptor. She was pulled over by an officer from the strike force, but only because they had been patrolling the road at that time.
