A Victorian man faces drug and theft charges after police found a large stolen Christmas star atop a 25-metre-tall gum tree in his backyard.

Police tracked down the yellow star - which was allegedly stolen from a community display - following numerous tip-offs from the public in Kerang.

The 24-year-old man was arrested and interviewed on Wednesday and has since been charged with cultivating a narcotic, possessing cannabis and theft, a Victoria Police spokeswoman said in a statement on Friday.

The Kerang man was bailed to appear at the Kerang Magistrates Court in early February.
