ONE man’s been arrested and another is still on the loose after they robbed and threatened people at a home in Florey on Tuesday (July 16).
Police were alerted to the aggravated robbery at about 4pm when they received a report that two armed men entered the home and allegedly threatened the occupants.
One of the men, a 31-year-old from Eden, NSW, was located in a garage at McCallum Street, Florey, a short time later where he was arrested.
In the garage police found a backpack, which contained a loaded sawn-off shotgun, a large kitchen knife and cable ties.
A short time later, police also located a car that was linked to the two men. Police seized a second sawn-off shotgun, a number of knives and items of clothing from the vehicle.
Police are still looking for the second man, believed to be involved in the incident. He is described as Caucasian in appearance, about 175cm (5’9”) tall, with a solid build and short hair.
The Eden man will face the ACT Magistrates Court today.
Police are urging anyone who may have any information that could assist police including the identity of the second man to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website using reference number 6417911.
