Hawker man arrested for violent crimes

By johnboy - 1 June 2012 5

ACT Policing arrested a 31-year-old Hawker man for multiple aggravated robbery and theft offences early this morning (June 1).

Shortly after midnight, ACT Policing Criminal Investigation officers executed a search warrant at a house in Gordon. During the search a number of items were seized in relation to ongoing investigations involving aggravated robberies.

Detective Superintendent Brett McCann from Criminal Investigations said that this arrest is important given the seriousness of the offences committed.

“Arrests like this demonstrate that ACT Policing is committed to apprehending people who commit these types of violent crimes which often traumatise the victims and witnesses,” Detective Superintendent McCann said.

At the completion of the search warrant, the man was conveyed to the ACT Watch House. He will be charged with two counts of aggravated robbery and theft and will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning. Bail will be opposed.

Great work AFP!!

Don’t get too excited – he was probably already on bail for offences committed whilst on bail for crimes committed after being released early from gaol on a good behaviour bond which has never been revoked yet despite umpteen court appearances since having received it.

Presumably a fellow-scumbag will sign an incomprehensible and implausible stat dec declaring that he didn’t do it, which will be good enough for the dimwit judge to set him free again, “on a very short leash!” this time of course, which will scare him out of ever doing anything naughty ever again..

Well done AFP.

I’d love to think that this a#$%hole is well known to them, and deserves to be off the streets.

But how are the judiciary to be persuaded that they are NOT worthy of a fifteenth go.
