A Bonner man’s scheduled to front ACT Magistrates Court charged with 10 offences, including allegedly breaching three different court orders and bail conditions.

Operation Toric officers found a Mitsubishi Lancer with stolen number plates parked in Bruce at about 4 pm yesterday (25 October).

Police said they then saw the 41-year-old return to the car. When he tried to drive away, officers successfully deployed stop-sticks and placed him under arrest.

It’s alleged the man, who was on bail, refused to undertake roadside screening tests and was taken to the ACT Watch House.
