Three people will face the ACT Magistrates Court today, after their arrest following an aggravated burglary in Ainslie yesterday (Tuesday, 28 January 2020).

Police will allege that during the burglary, a residence was ransacked and a Mercedes was stolen. The vehicle was subsequently tracked and located by police a short time later near the Gungahlin Town Centre.

It will be further alleged that the Mercedes and a Holden Commodore failed to stop for police.

Both vehicles were located in a parkland area in Fyshwick, where police observed what they believed to be stolen property being transferred between the vehicles.  

A 20-year-old man has been charged with aggravated burglary, driving a motor vehicle without consent, fail to stop, and theft.

A 32-year-old Watson man has been charged with aggravated burglary, and theft.

A 30-year-old man has been charged with three counts of driving while disqualified, three counts of using a number plate not properly issued, two counts of driving a motor vehicle without consent, possession of stolen property, possession of a drug of dependence, and warrant offences.

ACT Policing anticipates further charges will be laid against other people.
