A 32-year-old man’s been charged with multiple offences, accused of running from police in Tuggeranong.
Officers tried to stop a blue Peugeot hatchback on Heagney Crescent in Richardson at about 1:20 pm on Monday (10 October), which they said didn’t stop.
Police said the vehicle “failed to negotiate the intersection” with Goldstein Crescent soon after, making the car “undriveable”.
The man allegedly ran away with police and canine units not far behind.
The man was found by the canine unit a short time later, allegedly hiding in the backyard of a nearby home.
Police said the man had recently been released from custody on bail. He’s since been charged with breach of bail, unlicensed driving, fail to stop for police, drug driving and aggravated reckless driving.
