ROCHESTER police were called to a single vehicle rollover in Shackell Rd, Nanneella, soon after 4am Wednesday.

The driver had already left the scene by the time police arrived.

However, police said a mountain bike was stolen from nearby.

It was later found by police at another property about 5km away, where a Holden Rodeo ute had been stolen between 2am and 4am Wednesday.

The ute was also found by police in a table drain about 1km from the original accident site.
