Two charged over aggravated burglary, car theft

Police have charged two people they believe were involved in Wednesday morning’s pursuit across central and north Victoria.

A 26-year-old Bendigo man has been charged with theft of a motor vehicle, while a 22-year-old woman, also from Bendigo, is accused of aggravated burglary.

Both were bailed to appear in court at a later date, a police spokesperson said. 

Two of the alleged culprits of the aggravated burglary, which occurred in Bamawm about 5am Wednesday, are yet to be located.

Those wanted are thought to have fled the scene when police arrived and stolen a green Mazda dual-cab ute when their first getaway vehicle crashed into a culvert. 

Anyone with information is being urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
