A THEODORE man, 27, attempted to flee from police while they were searching his residence this morning (May 31).
Police went to his home this morning at about 12.45am with a warrant for firearm offences, possession of stolen property and stolen motor vehicles.
An hour later the man fled the residence on foot but was stopped by police a short distance away.
A search of the man revealed a flick knife in his trousers as well as a conducted energy weapon, credit card knife and two clip seal bags containing suspected methylamphetamine in his bum-bag. A subsequent search of the residence also found a modified handgun in one of the bedrooms.
The 27-year-old man has been charged with an outstanding warrant, possession of prohibited weapons and possession of a drug of dependence.
He faced the ACT Magistrates Court today.
