Police are investigating a crime spree across Auckland overnight where offenders from two vehicles are linked to three aggravated burglaries.

Police enquiries are underway following aggravated burglary incidents at service stations in Ormiston, Te Atatu and near the Auckland Airport, which took place between midnight and 3am.

Scene examinations are taking place today as police continue their enquiries into the incidents.

One of the vehicles involved was spotted by a patrol vehicle in Western Springs.

Police units did not follow the vehicle however it was monitored overhead by eagle helicopter, which observed the vehicle driving on the wrong side of the motorway on several occasions.

The vehicle collided with a Police patrol vehicle as it exited the Rimu Rd on-ramp in Mangere.

The offenders fled from the vehicle but were subsequently captured by Police.

One of the offenders injured his ankle while fleeing on-foot from Police and is receiving medical treatment.

A Police officer in the Police vehicle that was hit also received whiplash and was medically assessed as a precaution.

He is being supported by staff.

A 21-year-old male is appearing in the Manukau District Court today while a 14-year-old female and a 16-year-old male are appearing in the Manukau Youth Court.

Police enquiries are ongoing into these incidents and Police are unable to rule out additional charges being laid.
