Men arrested for school aggravated burglary
Release Date: Saturday, September 08 2012, 08:52 AM
Two men, aged 21 and 22, were arrested by police for an aggravated burglary at a Macquarie school overnight.
Around 1am today (Saturday, September 8), Belconnen General Duties members attended The Canberra High School on Bindubi Street in Macquarie after a report that multiple alarms had been activated at the school’s science building.
While patrolling the school, police saw two men hiding behind the science building. The men ran and attempted to climb over a security fence at the school, however they were stopped and arrested by police.
The two men were taken to the ACT Watch House, where they will be charged with aggravated burglary and theft. They are expected to face the ACT Magistrates Court on Monday (September 10).
