Two men will face the ACT Magistrates Court today on charges arising from an alleged burglary at a construction site in Greenway early this morning (26 April).

At about 3:25 am, ACT Policing received a report that two men had entered a construction site in Anketell Street, Greenway, through a fence.

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

Officers arrested two men at about 3:55 am as they attempted to leave the construction site via the gap they had allegedly cut in the security fence.

One man, a 56-year-old from Monash, has been 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 from Wanniassa, has been charged with aggravated burglary with intent to commit theft and joint commission of theft.

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