A 38-year-old man is due to face court in the ACT on Tuesday, after being extradited from Victoria to face a number of aggravated burglary charges.

The man was sentenced to 4 years behind bars after being found guilty to several aggravated burglaries, robberies and driving stolen vehicles across Canberra back in September last year.

As part of his sentence, he was referred to a rehab program through a drug treatment order.

The man subsequently skipped out on the program after one day and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

He was later found and sent back to the facility where he again disappeared.

Earlier this year the man was arrested in Victoria, where he pleaded guilty to a number of property offence committed while in the state.

He was released from custody on Friday after serving his sentence for the offences in Victoria and will now face the ACT Magistrates court, charged with theft and aggravated burglary relating to offences he allegedly committed in the ACT after his second stint in rehab.
