Mitchell Crime Investigation Unit detectives are investigating a burglary at Tyaak last month.
Investigators believe a man attended a property on Cunninghams Road about midday on Wednesday, August 19 and broke into the residence and multiple sheds on the property.
A badly damaged ute, a tandem trailer, three motorcycles and several tools were stolen.
Two of the motorcycles have since been recovered in Craigieburn, but the remaining items are still missing.
When the vehicle he arrived in was bogged, the offender stole the victim’s ute and trailer.
The ute did not have any licence plates on it and also had a smashed front windscreen.
The victim said the ute had a blown head and would have struggled to make it to Craigieburn where the motorcycles were found.
Images and CCTV footage have been released of a man police believe may be able to assist in their enquiries.
The offender is believed to be 25 to 30 years old, with a thin build, fair complexion and distinctive mark on his cheek.
At the time of the offence, he was wearing blue jeans, a black hoodie and black or dark coloured baseball cap.
Bus depot robbed
Detectives are also investigating a burglary at Seymour Bus Depot on Tuesday, August 25.
Two offenders gained access to the yard and a gated storage area about 11.30pm, where they stole several power tools and cleaning equipment.
The offenders were in the yard for about 25 minutes before leaving.
Anyone with information on either incident is urged to call Senior Constable Amy Voisey on 5735 0216, contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.
