ACT Policing arrested a 27-year-old Gordon man after he fled from police yesterday afternoon (Tuesday 11 June) in Canberra’s South.

Around 5:26pm yesterday Police attempted to approach a vehicle parked in Phillip Marketplace.

The male fled the scene and a short pursuit commenced through Phillip before being terminated.

The car was involved in a two vehicle collision at the intersection of Mawson Drive and Heard Street, Mawson, a short time later and failed to stop at the scene.

Three witnesses observed the male run from his damaged car and gave chase

The three men caught the man a short time later near the Mawson Playing Fields where police arrived.

two mobile telephone’s…..


So, is it illegal to have two mobiles or was he using them whilst driving the getaway vehicle? Noteworthy stuff for a press release. Also, “a sum of cash” could be anybody’s savings under their mattress. Serious crimes here I’m afraid.

Hats off to the three witnesses! Damn fine work.

Write up says they arrived and caught him.

The hoons seem to have left the Phillip Marketplace carpark since JB HiFi took their cheap car stereos and moved to The Plaza.
