Police have released footage of a man they wish to speak to as well as a Holden sports sedan stolen from a Cranbourne East home on 11 March.
Casey CIU detectives say burglars broke into a house and stole the silver HSV GTS sedan from its garage on Muirfield Close about 7am while the owners were on holiday.
Two days later, the stolen car and a man were captured on CCTV footage as the car’s occupants scoured through several cars at a car yard in Pakenham at 8pm.
The car yard’s owner and son, alerted by an alarm, observed the HSV parked in the business’ driveway.
The stolen car and its occupants fled and were chased by the car yard owner in his own vehicle before the cars collided in a nearby court.
The HSV driver, described as of Islander appearance, solid build and bald, drove from the scene.
The stolen car was found burnt-out on Loch-Wonthaggi Road, Almurta, on 15 March.
