Three males allegedly rammed a divisional van in North Geelong before police arrested them on Monday morning.
Witnesses saw the two men and one teenager breaking into cars at the North Geelong train station about 5.30am, police alleged.
When officers arrived at the scene the three men jumped into a car and the driver allegedly reversed into a police van before driving off.
Police initiated a short pursuit but quickly terminated it.
Shortly afterwards, police received reports of a collision between a garbage truck and the same car on Elizabeth Street, Geelong West.
The occupants of the car fled on foot before police arrived. Police recovered a Holden Commodore with stolen plates.
Police arrested two men aged 18 and 20, and a boy aged 17 in the vicinity of a car factory on North Shore Road, near Corio Quay Road, about 7am.
The 20-year-old was taken to hospital for observation. The other two males were in custody and assisting police with their inquiries on Monday morning.
