AAP logoAAP 4/09/2016

A man wanted over an armed robbery in Victoria has been arrested after crashing into a petrol tanker.

The 20-year-old remains under police guard in hospital after the smash on Friday where a suspected stolen car collided with a b-double petrol tanker near Camperdown.

The tanker ran off the road and the car overturned, landing in a paddock.

Police on Sunday said a loaded sawn-off shotgun, stolen goods and items used for break-ins were found at the scene.

A passenger in the car - a 15-year-old boy - was also taken to hospital before being interviewed and remanded in custody.

The driver, a Camperdown man, was wanted in relation to an armed robbery in Warrnambool on August 25.

Two offenders were armed with guns when they took a tin of cash and a wallet from a motorhome.

Police still want to speak to 30-year-old Keiarhn Carter over the incident last week.

Two others - a 29-year-old woman and 26-year-old man, both from Warrnambool - have also been charged in connection with the robbery and were remanded in custody to face Warrnambool Magistrates Court in November.
