A Terang man has been arrested and charged over alleged burglaries at a south-west transport company and football club.
Detective Senior Constable Richard Hughes, of the Warrnambool police crime investigation unit, said a 37-year-old Terang man was interviewed at the Warrnambool police station on Wednesday and charged with burglary and theft offences.
The charges related to an alleged incident on August 25 when Christians Auto's in Terang's Baynes Street was broken into and ransacked.
The accused is believed to have forced entry to the business using a jemmy bar or similar before rummaging through filing cabinets and cash drawers.
A tin containing a quantity of cash was allegedly stolen, as well as a car battery and a quantity of brake pad material.
Detective Senior Constable Hughes said the charges also related to a burglary on July 11 about 4am, and the theft of a bottle of brandy from Skipton's Country Grocer store on the afternoon of December 15.
The Terang man will appear in Warrnambool Magistrates Court on May 23.
