The 2019 Mitsubishi Triton was stolen from Arnold Street overnight on Wednesday, October 21, and was seen several times in Bendigo over the past week.
It was then found at a service station on Church Street, Hawthorn, about 4.20am on Monday, November 2.

But as police approached, the ute rammed two police vehicles and fled the scene.
Investigators believe the ute could be back in the Bendigo area.
The Bendigo Crime Investigation Unit has released images of the Triton and is appealing to anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online.
