Police have arrested and remanded a 42-year-old Koroit man who allegedly entered a Crossley house he was banned from attending.
Sergeant Paul Day, of Koroit police, said police recognised the man entering the address as someone who they had dealings with a month earlier.
They arrested him in the front yard.
"We spotted him walking away from a white ute parked out the front and into the address," Sergeant Day said.
"His friend who dropped him off, drove away when he saw us, leaving him behind. We recognised him as not having a licence and he was subsequently issued with a penalty notice."
Sergeant Day is also warning motorists to check their vehicles are roadworthy ahead of driving in winter conditions.
He reminded motorists to check headlights, tail lights, tyres, wiper blades and to leave "plenty of time to get where you are going".
"There have been instances of thick fog around the Tower Hill crater rim this week and I have noticed that there have been a couple of kangaroos struck and killed," Sergeant Day said.
"So the message is please slow down and take your time and take the time to check your car over."
He said police were also investigating the theft of 15 lambs in the Hawkesdale area.
"I would like all land owners to remain vigilant and report any suspicious persons or vehicle's immediately to the police. Please don't wait until the next day or the next week which sometimes people will do," he said.
