gun bust

A 21-year-old Braddon man will face court this morning after leading police on a chase through Canberra yesterday afternoon (Monday, May 27).

About 1pm ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations detectives attempted to conduct a vehicle stop on the driver of a silver Subaru Impreza.

The driver fled from police, travelling from Weston to Daley Road in Acton, where he abandoned the car and ran off on foot.

Police recovered a firearm a short distance from the vehicle along with a key to the car.

A short time later, witnesses saw a man matching the description of the alleged offender getting into a gold Holden Commodore on Daley Road in Acton.

Police stopped the vehicle and arrested the passenger who was taken to the ACT Watch House.

The Braddon man has been charged with unauthorised possession of a firearm, unauthorised possession of ammunition and multiple traffic offences. Police will be opposing bail.

The arrest involved officers from Criminal Investigations, General Duties, Specialist Response Group’s Dog Team and Traffic Operations.

A Braddon man? Was he a Hipster? Was it an obscure type of .357?

“Do you know who you’re dealing with?………Well, you’ve probably never heard of me!”

The very same person who allegedly waved a .357 around at a servo in Hume two weeks ago when during a fight he said “Do you know who you’re dealing with?” He’s been watching a few too many ‘Dirty Harry’ movies methinks.

Odd choice of escape route, choosing Daley Rd alone should qualify for a Mully. Heaps of pedestrians, limited exits, very silly.

Hopefully more news to come. Sounds like a potential Mully award winner.

Gold Holden Commodore… Bogan posse wanting some “style”. LOL.
Is that a bit of an overkill, like having gold-plated handgun covered in diamonds?
