POLICE have arrested a man and charged him with a string of offences after a short stand-off with Tactical Response Group (TRG) officers early Tuesday morning.

The man was wanted by police over a number of incidents across Perth in April and May.

TRG officers forced entry into a Canning Vale house at 1.15am and, after negotiating with the man for a period of time, he was taken into custody.

He was allegedly in possession of a shotgun and ammunition at the time, but there was no one else in the house when he was there.

Armadale detectives charged him over incidents that took place in Ballajura, Gosnells, Mount Nasura, Kelmscott and Canning Vale.

He was charged with two counts of aggravated armed robbery as well as aggravated robbery, going armed to cause fear, intending to cause grievous bodily harm, threats to kill, aggravated possession of a firearm, unlicensed possession of ammunition, discharging a firearm to cause fear, attempting to unlawfully kill, two counts of deprivation of liberty and breach of bail.

He will appear in Armadale Magistrates Court today.
