Two people then ran from the scene but were arrested shortly after.
A number of stolen items were found inside the car including the safe.
A 31-year-old man from Como has been charged with stealing a motor vehicle, reckless driving and breaching bail.
A 22-year-old woman from Victoria Park was charged with stealing a motor vehicle and breaching bail.
They are both due to appear in the Perth Magistrates Court today.
