Police say they spotted a blue Hyundai i30 in Maddington about 8.30am on Wednesday and tried to stop it, believing it was the same car stolen from a home in Gosnells earlier that morning.
Police say the driver failed to stop and took off.
The car was tracked from the sky by Police Air Wing as it travelled across multiple suburbs.

“The home suffered significant damage however nobody was home at the time of the incident.
“The male attempted to flee on foot however (he) was arrested almost immediately.”
The teen was charged with stealing a motor vehicle, reckless driving and criminal damage.
