Two men and a woman have been arrested after they fled from a stolen car in Kilsyth this morning.
Police first spotted the vehicle in the early hours of the morning when it was seen driving erratically and speeding through a number of suburbs including; Boronia, Kilsyth, Croydon and Ringwood.
The Air Wing assisted police units on the ground before the offenders were seen to dump the Holden Commodore and jump into another allegedly stolen car, a Volkswagen, in Kilsyth.
A short time later officers successfully deployed stop sticks at the intersection of Liverpool Road and Tereddan Drive, bringing the car to a stop.
The trio ran from the car but were arrested a short distance away.
Police dog ‘Ollie’ and his handler caught up with one of the offenders who was hiding up a tree.
The other two were arrested by uniformed officers after being found hiding in residential yards following a short foot pursuit.
The trio are currently assisting police with their enquiries.
