A 26-year-old Portland woman woman has been remanded in custody charged with stealing two vehicles.
Detective Sergeant Jason von Tunk, of the Portland police crime investigation unit, said the woman was arrested, interviewed, charged and remanded in custody overnight.
He alleged the woman was a passenger when a vehicle was stolen in South Australia and then an Isuzu ute was taken from an Amors Road address in Cashmore.
He said the woman was already on three lots of bail and serving a community corrections order.
The woman appeared briefly in Warrnambool Magistrates Court on Friday and was remanded in custody until November 26.
A Portland man was remanded in custody early this week after being charged with similar offences.
In Colac there was an attempted raid on a sports store.
Detective Senior Constable Mick Palmer, of the Colac police crime investigation unit, said a window at the Sportspower store in Murray Street was smashed at 10.45pm on Thursday.
He said offenders did not gain entry to the store.
The store was burgled during June with goods valued at $20,000 stolen.
"Offenders have fled the scene empty-handed. We're requesting anyone who has information about either of these offences to contact the Colac police station or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000," he said.
