Update, Thursday, 11.45am: A Hamilton man has had his bail revoked after re-offending less than one week after he was released from custody.
Lee McGuinnes, 38, of Martin Street, appeared in Warrnambool Magistrates Court on Thursday where police made a successful application to revoke his bail and remand him in custody until October 2.
Mr McGuinness faces new charges of shop steal and committing an indictable offence while on bail.
He told the court his custody management issues included being on Methadone.
Earlier: A Hamilton man on bail for burglary and theft was arrested late on Thursday after a police raid at his home uncovered stolen goods linked to an earlier break-and-enter.
Lee McGuinnes, 38, of Martin Street, appeared in Warrnambool Magistrates Court on Friday charged with prescription medication, property and bail offences.
He was released on bail with conditions, including he report to Hamilton police station twice a week, not contact any witnesses and abide by a 7am to 8pm curfew.
The court heard on July 18 Mr McGuinness was bailed in relation to the theft of a wallet on July 10 and a burglary and theft at a family member's home on July 16. Police allege Mr Guinness broke into a Hamilton home and stole a computer while his family member was at a Melbourne hospital appointment with a child.
Then on August 14, a forensic analysis of a crime scene was returned to police for another incident which pre-dated the dishonesty charges.
That led to a search warrant being executed at Mr McGuinnes' home late on Thursday.
During the search police located two Xbox 360 gaming units, a guitar, a Husqvarna chainsaw and a school bag believed to be linked to a burglary at a Wright Street property between June 20 and 23.
Prescription medication was also located in Mr McGuiness' bedroom. He did not have a prescription and the drugs were in someone else's name.
Lawyer Karin Temperley said her client was waiting to be accepted into a drug rehabilitation facility and that the bail offences related to the prescription medication, which belonged to a friend of Mr McGuinness.
She said Mr McGuinness was storing his friend's belongings at the property and he moved the medication inside so that his mother's dog would not eat it.
"At first I thought that sounded a bit like 'a dog ate my homework' but after obtaining further instructions I am somewhat persuaded that it is true," Ms Temperley said.
"In his own words Mr McGuiness said his life would not be worth living if something happened to his mother's beloved dog."
Magistrate Mark Stratmann said property evasions in small regional towns were serious.
But, he said the offending pre-dated Mr McGuinnes' bail and despite possessing the prescription medication, the man had otherwise been compliant.
Mr McGuinnes will appear in court again on October 2.
