The AFP have put out a media release describing desperate scenes in pursuit of an armed carjacker in our southern suburbs.

Five police vehicles including general duty patrols from Woden and Tuggeranong, and detectives from the Territory Investigations Group saturated the area searching for the stolen vehicle, and its driver.

The vehicle and a suspect were found at the Kambah Shops about an hour later where police took a man into custody.

Better in custody than not.

No no no no no, attach him to a bag of drugs bound for Bali

scum. attach him to the other phlegm recepticles to be installed in Garema Place.

I heard that they caught the guy when he ran into a Binco clothing store and changed his t-shirt. Apparently he was quite surprised that they still recognized him. 🙂
