Car yard ram raiders accused of stealing cash, car

TWO men allegedly ram raided a Belconnen car yard on Saturday (August 28) morning before stealing a till containing cash, car keys and a car. 

Between 3am and 4am, police allege a car with two men was used to force entry via the rear fence of the car yard before they stole the cash, keys and a Silver Nissan X-Trail.

That night, at about 11.30pm, police saw the stolen X-Trail speeding on Antill Street, Watson, with the headlights turned off.

Police followed the vehicle towards the Federal Highway where they used a device to deflate the stolen car’s tyres on Aspinall Street, Watson. The X-Trail came to a stop in Phillip Avenue at about 11.35pm where police arrested two men and a woman.

The woman, a 36-year-old from Kingston, was granted bail to appear in court in September on a charge of unlawful possession of stolen property.

A 28-year-old Charnwood man, who was on bail, will face charges in the ACT Magistrates Court of driving while disqualified, furious driving, failing to stop a motor vehicle for police, and driving a motor vehicle without consent.

A 31-year-old Holder man will face charges of riding a motor vehicle without consent, possessing a drug of dependence and possession of ammunition.
