Police have arrested a 15-year-old Hoppers Crossing girl and a 16-year-old girl from Werribee following an aggravated burglary in Manor Lakes.
Investigators have been told a resident at a Canons Crescent address heard a noise at the front of his residence about 2am.
A short time later he heard his Mitsubishi Lancer start up and drive off.
When he realised his car had been stolen he got into another vehicle, managed to located his stolen car and followed for a short while until stopping to call police.
Police initially patrolled the area and then attended the victim’s address to take reports.
As officers were returning to the station they spotted the Lancer and followed it into Princes Court, Werribee, a dead end street.
Police were able to intercept the car and arrested the occupants.
Both girls are currently being interviewed for aggravated burglary, theft of motor vehicle and other offences.
