Two teens have been arrested after allegedly stealing goods and being tracked down by police using an Apple AirTag.

A 16 and 18-year-old allegedly stole some items from a property in Ballarat North, Victoria at 3:30 am on Thursday.

The cargo of goods included a hidden Apple AirTag – a $49 device that can be attached to and track belongings such as keys or a wallet.

The owner of the missing items called the police and told them that the AirTag sent them a ping from a unit on Landsborough Street.

Officers followed the signal, searched the building and found the items in addition to a firearm and ammunition.

The two teens arrested by the police help officers with their investigation.

Apple AirTags have often helped police track stolen goods.

NSW resident Graham Tait had $10,000 worth of equipment stolen while driving through South Australia in April.

The AirTag pinged the location and led police to a room in the same hotel he was staying at the time.

In another incident, Trent Morey, a resident of South Australia, had his ute recovered after it was stolen in the middle of the night.

His caravan was allegedly broken into and his car keys stolen before his Nissan Navara was driven away.

The vehicle was found a few blocks away on Telegraph Road.
