Two men will face court on Tuesday morning (30 July) following the ram raid at Harvey Norman in Fyshwick in the early hours of yesterday morning.
Around 3:55 am, police responded to reports of a ram raid on the corner of Ipswich and Barrier Street Fyshwick, where the building had sustained significant damage and an amount of property was stolen.
Following an investigation by the Criminal Investigations team, officers arrested a 37-year-old man in Coombs, charged with trespass and attempting to drive a motor vehicle without consent.
Further investigations led ACT Policing to execute search warrants on premises in Rivett, Lyons and Phillip. At each location, police found property stolen at the Fyshwick aggravated burglary and another aggravated burglary at an ACT Government depot in Kambah.
A 38-year-old Lyons man was also arrested, charged with aggravated burglary and theft.
The men will face the ACT Magistrate’s Court today where police will oppose bail.
Anyone with any information about the burglaries, or who may have dash-cam or other footage from the areas around the time of the incidents, is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
