The pair aged 24 and 26, were arrested late in the morning on Monday, after they fled from a stolen vehicle in Figtree, near Wollongong.
The couple had to travel through southern New South Wales since Friday in various stolen cars, committing a series of serious crimes in the Griffith, Cootamundra and Wagga Wagga areas — including a bigger break and enter in which a woman was beaten, with the end of a gun, according to police.
The men gave way to gather late in the night on Monday after a pursuit on the Hume highway, which ended when the stolen ute they drove rammed a police car, with the couple fleeing into the Bush.
