Wanted man arrested

Police in Wagga say the community is now a safer place, after the arrest of a 20 year old man from Ashmont, who they had been seeking on outstanding warrants.

The man was arrested by plain clothes police after a short foot chase in Ashmont yesterday.

He had allegedly been spotted driving a Commodore, which police tried to pull over without success, before he got out of the car and ran.

He's since been charged with 28 offences, including eight counts of Steal From Motor Vehicle, two of Take and Drive Conveyance, one Aggravated Break and Enter, and numerous traffic offences.
