A 24-year-old man charged with serious driving and dishonesty offences occurring across Ballarat and Creswick has indicated he would plead guilty.
Brandon Holmes was arrested last week after police detectives raided a Sebastopol house relating to a spate of vehicle thefts and break-ins around railway stations.
He appeared in the dock of the Ballarat Magistrates Court on Wednesday where he indicated most of the charges would resolve with a guilty plea.
A large group of family members supported Holmes in court as the magistrate read out the charges.
He faces 18 charges from November to June which include handling stolen number plates, car theft, car theft while on bail, driving in a dangerous manner, failing to stop on police direction, driving while disqualified, dishonestly receiving stolen number plates and reckless conduct endangering serious injury.
Holmes, who did not make an application for bail, will reappear in court for a consolidated plea hearing on July 23.
