A man is in custody in Echuca after evading police near Rochester yesterday.

The 28 year old handed himself in at Echuca Police Station last night, after police deployed a helicopter to search for a driver who evaded a police intercept yesterday morning.

He was eventually stopped after police used stop sticks, but the man then stole another vehicle to avoid police, that was later found dumped in Elmore.

Police allege the man then stole another vehicle, which has since been recovered.

The man is believed to have no fixed address, and is assisting police with their enquiries.
