Police are investigating the links between three aggravated robberies over the weekend in which a phone and two cars were stolen.

In the early hours of Saturday morning (7 September), a man’s phone was stolen in an incident on Ross Smith Crescent, Scullin. Police did not reveal more information about the robbery except that a black hatchback was used in the incident.

Around 3:25 pm on Sunday afternoon (8 September), police received reports of a Holden Astra being driven in an erratic, dangerous manner in Rivett.

Shortly after, an owner of a black Volkswagen Golf was threatened by two occupants of the Holden Astra. The Golf was stolen by two women and both vehicles left the scene in the direction of the Rivett shops.

Police have since recovered both the Holden Astra and Volkswagen Golf.

Earlier this morning (9 September), police received a report that two offenders were stealing a silver BMW from a unit complex in Turner.

ACT Policing are investigating possible links between the three incidents and the people responsible.

Anyone with information, CCTV or dash-cam footage that could assist police is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
