ACT Policing has seized a vehicle for the second time in four months after it was seen doing a burnout in a carpark off Florey Drive yesterday (Sunday, January 29).
Police were conducting a mobile patrol in Latham around 4.40pm when they saw the black V8 Holden Calais doing the burnout.
When police arrived, the driver of the vehicle jumped out of the vehicle and ran off. A 19-year-old man, who was the owner of the vehicle, remained in the front passenger’s seat.
The driver, a 21-year-old Charnwood man, later returned to the vehicle and admitted to having driven the car during the burnout.
