ACT Policing is investigating the trespassing of a man at an apartment in Kingston yesterday morning (Thursday 27 June).

The 33 year old man of no fixed abode was found by police to be illegally residing in the premises.

Police had received a complaint from the owners that someone had attempted to access their bank account with documentation that was inside the home.

The subsequent investigation confirmed an illegal trespasser had been residing in the premises.

Around 10.30am the next morning, police saw a man leaving the location.

The man attempted to run from police but was apprehended shortly after.

The man was found in possession of items believed to be stolen from the home.

The 33 year old was arrested and taken to the ACT Watch House.

He will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning charged with trespassing, burglary, going equipped for theft and being in possession of stolen property.
