Share Canberra's trusted news:


ACT Policing has arrested a 21-year-old Gilmore man this morning (Saturday, 30 July) for a warrant relating to multiple speeding offences.

The man was wanted by police for regularly placing road user’s lives at risk by reaching speeds of up to 187km/ hour on public roads.

The man is a disqualified driver whose dangerous driving was rapidly escalating by attempting to engage in police pursuits, failing to stop for police and had accumulated $21,553 worth of Traffic Infringement Notices.

At around 12.05am, ACT Policing arrested the man who was a passenger in a silver coloured Mazda hatchback which was stopped on the Monaro Highway.

He was removed from the vehicle and placed under arrest for an outstanding First Instant Warrant before being taken to the ACT Watch House.

Police also seized a Honda Prelude in relation to these matters which was located in the rear yard of a property in Gilmore. The car had been painted a different colour and had false ACT registration plates attached.

The man will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning where police will be opposing bail with multiple fresh charges to be laid.

Police remind people they should not report crime information via Facebook and Twitter pages.
