A MAN has been remanded in custody over a pursuit that ended in Waubra on Saturday.
Toufic Tlais, 30, of Glenroy, was allegedly clocked at 196km/h in a 70km zone, in the pursuit which began at Stawell.
Police allege Tlais reached speeds of 200km/h near Stawell at 9.30am on Saturday but had to abandon their pursuit when it was deemed unsafe for the public and police to continue.
A public tip-off allowed police to relocate the alleged offender two hours later on the Sunraysia Highway, north of Waubra, where the pursuit successfully ended.
Tlais faced Ballarat Magistrates Court this morning but made no application for bail.
He is charged with negligent driving while pursued by police, manner dangerous, speed dangerous, theft of a motor vehicle, theft of petrol, exceeding the speed limit and other traffic and drug offences.
He has been remanded to face court on Monday, February 11.
