A NSW man will face the ACT Magistrates Court on Thursday (18 July) following a home invasion in Florey earlier this week.
Around 4 pm on Tuesday afternoon (16 July), police received a report that two men had entered a Florey residence armed with weapons before allegedly threatening the occupants.
A 31-year-old man was located in a garage at McCallum Street, Florey a short time later where police arrested him.
Police also found a backpack in the garage which contained a loaded sawn-off shotgun, a large kitchen knife and cable ties.
