ACT Policing arrested a 32-year-old Ainslie woman on Thursday (22 June, 2023) in connection with a ram-raid on Monday morning (19 June, 2023). She was allegedly in possession of drugs when arrested.
The ram-raid occurred in Garran about 3.45am Monday, when a stolen Toyota Celica was allegedly used to force entry to a liquor store. A cash register, 18 bottles of liquor, and 477 packets of cigarettes were allegedly stolen.
The Celica was later located burnt out in Bonner.
On Thursday afternoon, police located the woman in a Phillip shopping centre, and placed her under arrest. A subsequent search allegedly located bags containing methamphetamines, cocaine, and heroin.
The woman faced the ACT Magistrates Court yesterday (Friday) charged with aggravated burglary, three counts of possessing a drug of dependence, and breach of good behaviour obligations.
