Police Seize Two Vehicles


ACT Policing yesterday seized two vehicles for dangerous driving endangering members of the public.

Police last night, closed Lonsdale Street in Braddon for the second consecutive night, to try and disperse a crowd.

The street was closed for two hours and reopened once the crowd had dispersed.

A short time later a large crowd gathered at the service station at the intersection of Yallourn Street and Canberra Avenue in Fyshwick.

Vehicles immediately began doing burnouts and police seized two of the vehicles. Police stopped others from entering the area and the crowd dispersed.

A crowd then gathered near Tralee Street in Hume but quickly dispersed as police turned vehicles around.

A large crowd gathered at a service station on Monaro Highway in Hume. A member of the crowd set off a firework in the service station.

Investigations into these incidents remain ongoing. Police anticipate charges being laid.
