Police have charged a pair of alleged car thieves with 54 charges after their machete-wielding rampage last Friday.

The 18 and 27-year-old are accused of stealing at least 3 cars, evading police and wilful damage - including threatening car owner with machete.

The pair was arrested in Felton on Friday in relation to armed robberies that took place in Westbrook and Cotswold Hills.

After threatening a family in the Westbrook property with a knife they took off with two vehicles, not long after they allegedly stole a third vehicle from a Cotswold Hills home, this time armed with a machete.

The 18-year-old has been charged with 28 offences while the 27-year-old has been charged with 26.

Police are still looking for two other men of interest they believe were involved.
