Three men have been charged following an alleged burglary in Dimboola last week.

It’s alleged a stolen Ford Falcon pulled up outside an Ellerman Street service station last Monday, with two men smashing the front windows of the store and stealing tobacco products and cash before fleeing.

Police found the car at a licensed Lydiard Street premises in Ballarat a short time later and arrested three men.
