TWO men and a woman – who abandoned a stolen car, with stolen number plates and containing stolen goods – are yet to be found.
Ballarat police Sergeant Siri Reed said the trio left Safeway Liquor at Bridge Mall with stolen goods when they fled in the vehicle after seeing a police foot patrol unit.
Sergeant Reed said they drove the vehicle the wrong way down Little Bridge Street before turning left into Peel Street and crashing into two parked cars.
They then fled on foot before police located the vehicle.
Ballarat police are urging anyone with any information to contact the station on 5336 6000 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
