TWO men will face ACT Magistrates Court on charges stemming from a burglary at a building site in Greenway early this morning (April 26).

At around 3.25am police received a report that two men had illegally entered a building site in Anketell Street, Greenway through a fence.

Police will allege the men broke into an office on site and attempted to steal items including power tools, radios, a charging station and a microwave oven.

Officers arrested the two men at around 3:55 a.m. as they tried to leave the construction site through the gap they had previously dug in the security fence.

One man, a 56-year-old from Monash, was charged with two counts of aggravated burglary with intent to commit theft and one count of joint commission of theft.

The other man, a 49-year-old man from Wanniassa, was charged with aggravated burglary with intent to commit theft and joint commission of theft.

Both men are due to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court this morning.
