Detectives charge man over spate of burglaries

A man will face court over a string of burglary offences spanning across the Ballarat region over recent months.

Police allege up to 15 break-ins occurred from August 11 until last Monday in Trentham, Creswick and Daylesford.

The alleged offender, a 35-year-old man from Melton, was remanded in custody and will front court in October.

It comes after Ballarat police urged residents to help prevent break-ins by remembering to lock up, especially around garages.
