Three Teen Girls Arrested Following Car Theft.

Detectives from the Wyndham Crime Investigation Unit have arrested and charged three teenagers following an alleged burglary and car theft at a Manor Lakes gym on 7 April.

It’s alleged the trio stole car keys from a Ballan Road gym locker area about 8.30am.

The group allegedly went to steal a car from the nearby carpark when they were confronted by a passer-by.

One teen allegedly took off in the vehicle and two others fled on foot.

Police located the stolen vehicle on Brightvale Boulevard shortly after and arrested three female teens:

• Two 15-year-olds from Tarneit

• A 14-year-old from Hoppers Crossing

All were charged with burglary and theft.

The 14-year-old was bailed, and the two 15-year-olds were remanded, all to appear at a children’s court at a later date.
