A 38-year-old Lyons man and a 37-year-old Rivett man will face the ACT Magistrate’s Court today (Tuesday, 30 July 2019) following the aggravated robbery of a Fyshwick business yesterday.

About 3.55am (Monday, 29 July), a business on Barrier Street in Fyshwick was rammed by a vehicle. The premises sustained significant damage and an amount of property was stolen.

Following an investigation by the Criminal Investigations team, officers arrested the Rivett man at Coombs.

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.

The 38-year-old man was arrested after the warrant in Lyons was executed.

The 37-year-old man has been charged with trespass and attempting to drive a motor vehicle without consent, and the 38-year-old has been charged with aggravated burglary and theft.

Police will oppose bail.
