ACT Policing has charged an 18-year-old man with multiple theft charges, including that of several high performance cars, after a search warrant was executed on a Kingston residence yesterday.
The cars, a Porsche Boxster, a Porsche Cayenne and a Subaru Impreza WRX, were all driven away after the ignition keys were stolen during a burglary on a residential address in Kingston last week.
The Cayenne was later recovered on Dairy Flat Road in Fyshwick, the WRX in Kingston, and the Boxster in a church carpark in Narrabundah.
Acting on information received and forensic material obtained, around 11.45am yesterday (Monday, July 9) police executed the search warrant and seized a number of items. The alleged offender, who was present at the time of the warrant, was subsequently arrested and conveyed to the ACT Watch House.
