© SNPA Two teens have been arrested and charged over the armed robbery of a Christchurch dairy and a subsequent car chase.

The 16-year-old males face a number of charges following Saturday night's events.

Police say three people entered the dairy on Division Street late in the afternoon, armed with a baseball bat and a firearm, and stole cash and cigarettes.

They were later found in a stolen vehicle, where the driver failed to stop for police.

The two were arrested when the car chase ended about 10.20pm, about 11km away in Avondale Road.

The charged pair will appear in Christchurch District Court on Monday and police are trying to find the third person.
