A teenager has been arrested after a car ploughed into a garage in Hampton Park on Wednesday 12 August.
Emergency services were called to a vacant house on Kerrison Drive about 3.10pm, to reports of a car that drove through a garage wall.
A Victoria Police spokesperson confirmed the incident related to a burglary after an Audi sedan slammed into a roller door.
“Police arrested a man in his late teens inside the house who, is currently assisting police with their enquiries,” the spokesperson said.
Investigators were on scene as they tried to piece together the chain of events.
Photos showed an Audi sedan in the garage as Narre Warren State Emergency Service volunteers worked to cut the front and rear roller doors of the garage, which appeared to have been both rammed in the incident, exposing extensive brick work damage.
Firefighters from Hampton Park CFA also attended following reports of a strong gas smell just after 3.40pm, which was brought under control within 15 minutes, a CFA spokesperson said.
Emergency crews remained on scene until just after 4.30pm.
It’s understood no one was injured in the incident with Ambulance Victoria saying their attendance was not required.
Anyone who witnessed the incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
