A 41-year-old Ainslie man will face the ACT Magistrates Court today after police caught him inside a home allegedly committing a burglary this morning (Monday, March 12).
About 1.45 am police were called to a home in Ainslie after the home owner reported someone inside her residence. The home owner heard a window being opened and locked herself in the bathroom to contact police.
Within minutes police were at the home, cordoning the house and calling out to the alleged offender to exit the home. The man refused to exit so police entered the home and located the man hiding behind a door in the laundry.
He was arrested and taken to the ACT Watch House where he was charged with Burglary, Going equipped for theft and Attempt Theft. Police will be opposing bail.
