A POLICE helicopter helped make two arrests within five minutes in Cranbourne and Bangholme last week.
The first arrest occurred in Cranbourne between 3am and 4am on 17 May. Police say they spotted a car driving along Ballarto Road at 150 kmph at around 3.15am.
The allegedly stolen car was tracked along Hall Road, Frankston-Cranbourne Road, South Gippsland Freeway, and Thompsons Road. After crashing into a ditch, a man and woman in their 20s allegedly tried to flee on foot but were quickly arrested.
Almost immediately afterward the police helicopter was called to Seaford. A car had allegedly sped off from police on Yazaki Way.
The helicopter tracked the car to a property on Smith Street in Carrum. The driver, a 37-year-old man, was arrested.
Anyone who witnessed the incidents can assist with the investigation by calling Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
