A 38-year-old Portland man has been charged after a stolen ute and expensive plumbing equipment was recovered in a police raid at the weekend.
Detective Sergeant Jason von Tunk, of the Portland police crime investigation unit, said a Holden Commodore utility and expensive plumbing equipment were stolen from a Garden Street property a couple of weeks ago.
"On Saturday police attended a Daniel Street address in Portland," he said.
"A vehicle was recovered in the back yard. A 38-year-old Portland man was arrested, interviewed, charged and bailed to appear in the Portland Magistrates Court on November 23.
"He's been charged with theft of a vehicle and theft from a vehicle."
Detective Sergeant von Tunk said a $30,000 drain/sewer camera was recovered but not an expensive car fridge.
"The victim was delighted to get his ute back, which was not damaged except for a flat tyre," he said.
Anyone with information about the car fridge is requested to contact the Portland police station on 5522 0000 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
