TWO adults and two teenagers from Ceduna have been arrested and charged after a number of recent break-ins and car thefts across the Eyre Peninsula.
The spree reportedly began after a house was broken into in Ceduna with a blue Holden also stolen at the scene on October 7.
Police said over the next two days, the suspects allegedly stole a further six cars and committed another two break-ins along the Lincoln Highway, including in Ceduna, Port Lincoln, Tumby Bay, Arno Bay and Cleve.
Some of the vehicles were involved in pursuits with police, with suspects allegedly ramming a police car in Port Lincoln at around 2.30am on October 9, however no injuries were reported from the incident.
A stolen car the suspects were travelling in rolled on the Lincoln Highway a few kilometres north of the Iron Duke mine site later the same day when police attempted to stop the vehicle with road spikes.
The suspects fled on foot from the vehicle into nearby scrub land.
Police said at around 12.30pm three of the suspects were spotted on a yellow motorcycle west of the Whyalla township.
Several hours later, the suspects were arrested at a house in Whyalla.
Police said a 21-year-old man, 19-year-old man and 16-year-old youth, all from Ceduna, were arrested and charged with illegal use of a motor vehicle, serious criminal trespass and are likely to be charged with other offences as the investigation continues.
The three suspects have been refused bail and appeared in court on October 10.
Police were looking for a fourth suspect connected to the crime spree, with a 17-year-old male youth from Ceduna arrested and charged on October 12.
The fourth suspect appeared in Adelaide Youth Court on October 14.
