Armed thieves have led down police on a chase down Melbourne’s Nepean Highway.

It came after the thieves robbed a Caltex service station in Mornington earlier this morning.

Police are now investigating a burnt out car, which is believed to be a getaway vehicle, for clues to the robbery.

A service station attendant is said to have locked himself in the back room of the service station after two offenders smashed a front door and forced their way in.

It is reported they stole cigarettes and money before feeling before spotted driving a Holden Commodore on the Nepean Highway.

Victoria police spokeswoman Amara Bostock said “Police engaged in a pursuit which lasted a short time and are now investigating,”

“No one was injured in the incident.

“Police located the car burnt out a short time later in Narre Warren.”

Police are now hunting the pair and anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
