Three teenagers have been charged after crashing an allegedly stolen car into a house in Melbourne’s north-east this morning.

The Holden Rodeo was reported stolen from a MacLeod property about 1.45am.

Minutes later, it had slammed into the fence of a home on Lewellin Grove in nearby Rosanna, before crashing into a house across the street.

The car ended in the kitchen of the house. No one was injured.

Police say the occupants of the Holden Rodeo ran away.

The dog squad was called in, and they tracked down three teenagers in nearby Erskine Road.

The teens — two boys and one girl, all aged 15 — were arrested just as they were entering a taxi.

It is believed one male is still outstanding in relation to the incident and police investigations continue.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at
