Charged with multiple offences #2

A 30-year-old NSW man has been charged with multiple offences following a burglary in Fyshwick in the early hours of this morning (Monday, 8 April 2024). 

About 2.23am, police received reports of a burglary occurring at a store on Newcastle Street, Fyshwick. 

Upon arrival, police were notified by on-site security that the man in a green Mazda, believed to be responsible for the burglary, had rammed their vehicle, before taking off in the Mazda. 

A short time later, police observed the Mazda in bushland a short distance away, allegedly full of stolen property from the store including several tools. 

The man then allegedly ran from the vehicle and jumped over a nearby fence in an attempt to run away from police, before he was located shortly after and arrested. 

The man was subsequently charged with burglary, theft, using an unregistered vehicle, dangerous driving, numberplate issued for another vehicle, and unlawfully possessing stolen property. He is expected to face the ACT Magistrates Court today.
