South-west police are looking for the driver of a white Navara ute which evaded officers in a dangerous incident at Casterton about noon on Tuesday.
Police have been on the hunt for the driver of the Navara since he first evaded arrest on July 2.
He was originally wanted for questioning after allegations of burglary and theft at Coleraine.
Detective Sergeant Mark James said the 21-year-old Casterton driver had now allegedly been involved in three evading police incidents.
The man also fled to South Australia and is understood to have been committing similar offending in that state.
Detective Sergeant James said the driver had allegedly been border hopping between Victoria and Mount Gambier in an effort to avoid police.
"He has crossed the border into South Australia numerous times and each time he will be liable for a $1652 COVID fine for breaching the regulations of the chief health officer," he said.
In relation to Tuesday's incident, Sergeant Ash Rawlings said he was keen to speak to the drivers of two vehicles, one a red sedan, who were at the at the scene of the evade.
He identified the driver as a person of interest who was wanted on warrants.
The Navara was heading towards Bahgallah Road, became boxed in, did a 180-degree turn, headed straight for a police vehicle before abruptly turning onto the riverbank and speeding off towards the Casterton racecourse.
Last Friday night Hamilton police were involved in an incident during which the Navara driver drove onto a rough pine plantation track in heavy rain.
Police officers were forced to chase on foot.
The Navara became bogged, but the driver was able to gain traction just as police officers approached the vehicle and the driver was able to escape.
The frustrated officers were drenched during their unsuccessful foot pursuit.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of the driver, or any witnesses, are requested to contact the Hamilton police station on 5551 9100 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
