Young teen offenders are living "the high life" with cash from organised criminal groups in return for breaking into Melbourne homes and stealing luxury cars, police say.

There's been a spate of aggravated burglaries and carjackings in Melbourne this year with expensive cars being targeted.

"Some of the young offenders that are being coordinated by these organised crime groups are actually just getting cash - the sort of money they've never had before, so they're living the high life," Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Stephen Fontana told reporters on Friday.
