A 15 year old Mount Austin boy has been charged and police are seeking two other offenders, wanted for questioning over two ram raids in Adelong and Alfredtown in the early hours of yesterday.
Officers believe the group stole a vehicle and used it in the two ram raid incidents.
Police spotted the car in Ashmont but didn't give chase, saying the risk was too great, because the car was driven intentionally and directly at them, as well as other innocent road users.
It was later found dumped, police searched a property in Marshall Street later in the day.
The 15 year old boy will appear before court today, meanwhile police have released CCTV footage on Facebook, and are encouraging the other two offenders to hand themselves in.
