For those of you who would have seen or heard what seems like every police car in Canberra speeding south down Adelaide Avenue, I’ve heard they were responding to a robbery of an old woman at an ATM in Weston Creek.
Apparently there has been a series of such robberies where the offenders wait until an older person withdraws money and snatches their bag.
I’ve been told there was a pursuit, but no news on any outcome.
“Four police cars just screamed through my little and quiet tree-lined street in Ainslie with lights and sirens. The sirens and sounds of speeding cars around neighbouring streets went on for about 3-4 minutes.
Anyone know what is going on?
updated to add – 4pm – just heard it on the news – 10 car police chase that started in Philip and ended 2 blocks from me in Ainslie. Boy! Car explosions 2 blocks to the east and now car chases 2 blocks to the west. What’s next!”

“My workmate just picked up his kids from North Ainsle Primary school & messaged me saying he witnessed a Police chase involving up to 20 cars, eventually ramming or blocking a car near the school & chasing someone on foot. Anyone know what the deal was?”
