A man has been arrested after he allegedly became stuck inside the chimney of a Lancefield pharmacy overnight.

Police were initially called to the High Street store about 10.30pm after the alarm went off.

A short time later, police were called to the same address by a man who had become trapped in the chimney.

The 22-year-old Woodend man was assessed on scene for minor injuries before being taken back to a police station to be interviewed.

He was charged with burglary and bailed to appear at the Kyneton Magistrates’ Court on February 4 2019.
