Eight teenagers arrested in stolen car

Eight South Australian teenagers led police on a chase early on Saturday morning in a stolen car before the tyres were spiked and police dogs found them in suburban gardens.

Just after midnight on Saturday, police in Adelaide spotted a Toyota SUV that had been stolen the previous day.

A police helicopter began following the car as it travelled west from the city before officers spiked the vehicle's tyres on Henley Beach Road.

The car kept going before it eventually stopped a short time later in a suburban street off the main road.

The eight occupants dumped the car and fled.

Police dogs Duke and Chaos worked to help officers find all of the boys, who were hiding in nearby gardens.

Those arrested include a 14-year-old boy from Hampstead Gardens, two 12-year-old boys from Greenacres, a 14-year-old boy from Pennington and 13 and 14 -year-old boys from Hendon.

All have been charged with illegal use of a motor vehicle and were bailed to appear in Adelaide Youth Court on February 24.

A 12-year-old boy from Campbelltown and a 17-year-old from Oakden have been charged with illegal use of a motor vehicle and breach of bail offences.

They were refused police bail and will appear in Port Adelaide Magistrates Court on January 9.
