Three people will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning charged over a significant number of motor vehicle thefts and other serious traffic offences.

About 2.30pm yesterday (13 September 2018), members of ACT Policing’s Criminal Disruption Team intercepted a stolen Toyota Land Cruiser outside a Belconnen fast food restaurant.

In an attempt to evade police, the Land Cruiser drove through a safety fence before tipping onto its side.

Police arrested a 24-year-old Phillip woman, a 21-year-old Richardson man and a 22-year-old Latham woman.

A fourth offender fled the scene on foot after assaulting a police officer.

The trio will face a total of 11 charges including Ride or Drive a Motor Vehicle Without Consent, Common Assault, Aggravated Furious/Reckless/Dangerous Driving and Possessing Ammunition. Police will oppose bail.
