A 24-year-old Yarralumla man placed on a good behaviour bond earlier this week was back before the courts again on Friday (10 June) after allegedly committing further offences.

The man was arrested after there was a burglary in Campbell, a car theft from Crace and number plates were stolen from Lawson.

ACT Policing said the man entered into a good behaviour order on Tuesday (7 June). Later on that same day, a white Toyota Corolla was stolen from a carpark in Crace, and two days later number plates were stolen from a Toyota Camry in Lawson.

At about 9:10 am yesterday (9 June), the Corolla with the stolen number plates attached was used in the burglary of a home in Vasey Street, Campbell. The residents of the home confronted the offender.

On Thursday afternoon, ACT Policing located the white Corolla in Yarralumla outside the 24-year-old man’s residence and seized it.

About 10 pm, police arrested the 24-year-old after conducting a traffic stop on a vehicle he was driving in Kingston.

He was charged with driving a motor vehicle without consent, two counts of knowingly concerned burglary, and breaching good behaviour obligations.
