Thirteen teenagers have been charged with a total of 37 offences relating to the alleged theft of luxury cars and police pursuits in the New South Wales Hunter Region.

The charges also include aggravated breaking and entering, theft and reckless driving.

Some of the teens appeared in court on Thursday, while others are due to front court on Friday. 

Police said the teens allegedly used stolen cars to commit additional property offences and engage in police pursuits that were live-streamed on social media platforms. 

Police said the teenagers allegedly used social media to co-ordinate their actions and locate vehicles.

The arrests were made after a three-day investigation across the Hunter and Newcastle regions that wrapped up on Wednesday, involving officers from Lake Macquarie, Port Stephens-Hunter, Hunter Valley, and Newcastle City police districts.

More to come.
