Two 12-year-olds are among nine youths charged over a series of car thefts and burglaries outside gyms in Melbourne’s west.

The young burglars allegedly snatched keys from gym lockers and stole vehicles from nearby car parks at six gyms from January to March.

They were busted after being seen acting suspiciously in the locker area of a Tarneit gym at about 1.35am yesterday.

Police attended and arrested two 12-year-old boys and one 14-year-old boy with allegedly stolen car keys in their possession.
