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.
