Canberra police have arrested a 48-year-old man in Phillips’s shooting last year.
- Police received a warrant to track Reatile Ncube’s phone in April
- Court hears details of CCTV and traffic camera footage and phone conversations
- Court heard that more arrests are likely in the case
Ratile NCUB, 19, was produced before the ACT Magistrates Court on charges of murder.
Glenn Walewicz was shot at his front door at Philippe in June last year.
Police say only one shot was fired.
Later, police said a white car, which they believed may have been involved, was found crashed on Denman Prospect.
Court documents show that police obtained warrants to supervise Mr. Ncube’s phone conversations in April.
The court heard that the police also collected information from CCTV footage from a bus and traffic cameras, which showed a dark colored car being driven by Mr.
He told the police that the car belonged to a family member, but he was driving it because his own car was not working.
Court material shows Mr. Ncube was interviewed by police last week, when he admitted he was in the area on June 10 last year, but said he knew nothing about the murder, he were not involved and did not know who was involved.
Documents show that the police later supervised a conversation when he discussed a police interview in which he reportedly said: “But f*** bro, f***. I have to get rid of some – know What do I mean.”
His friend reportedly made a comment about the incident
“You know that people know. You know that people know [name known to police] shot that man,” said the man.
“F***, who likes that?” Mr. Ncube is accused of answering.
Later, she reportedly talked about getting rid of the “shotties” when her friend remarked that the police could listen and warned her that if he helped anyone, he would be an assistant.
Court material shows that when police went to arrest him, they confiscated his phone and reportedly found two live 12-gauge shotgun shells in his bedside table.
The court heard that more arrests are likely.
Mr. Ncube will return to court later in June.
