A 36-year-old Kennington man has been charged by Victoria Police following a string of alleged offences in the Bendigo area.
The offences allegedly committed included burglaries, thefts of electronics, keys, numbers plates and petrol were allegedly committed between September 29 and November 5.
Police said the man and his passenger, a 35-year-old woman from Golden Square, were arrested in an allegedly stolen car, following a lengthy pursuit that ended in Epsom on Thursday, November 5.
Following a major police operation involving the police air wing, the man and woman crashed the Mitsubishi Triton they were driving, into a tree on Howard Street, Epsom at about 12.30pm.
The vehicle was allegedly stolen during an aggravated burglary in Bendigo on October 21.
Police alleged the stolen ute was used to ram a police vehicle in Hawthorn on November 2, causing minor injuries to one police member.
The ute was spotted in Eaglehawk at about 11.40am on Thursday last week, Victoria Police said.
"An attempt was made to intercept the vehicle and it fled at high speed," police said.
"Police continued to monitor the car's movements in the Bendigo area until stop sticks were deployed on Howard Street, Epsom."
The ute then crashed into a tree in bushland at the side of the road.
The pair were taken to Bendigo Hospital, where the woman remains under police guard.
The Kennington man has since been discharged from hospital and charged with 35 offences.
These include four counts of aggravated intentional exposure of emergency worker to risk by driving, aggravated burglary, theft, theft of motor vehicle, dangerous driving whilst pursued by police, unlicensed driving, reckless conduct endangering serious injury, assault emergency worker and others.
He has been remanded in custody and will appear before the Bendigo Magistrates' Court on November 9 for a filing hearing.
