A man has been charged with five offences over alleged crimes that police said took place less than an hour after they released him.
Officers received reports of a man rummaging through storage lockers and acting suspiciously in an apartment complex basement in Canberra City at about 11:30 pm on Thursday (23 February).
A 35-year-old man was arrested for unlawfully trespassing and he was granted conditional police bail at the ACT watch house at about 4 am.
Less than an hour later, police received reports the same man had returned to the apartment complex and allegedly stole a red Ducati motorbike.
Officers found the man in Reid on Monday (27 February) and arrested him again.
He’s now facing charges of burglary, taking a motor vehicle without consent, driving a motor vehicle without consent, driving while his license was cancelled and breaching his bail conditions.
The 35-year-old will appear before the ACT Magistrates Court today (28 February).
