TWO men were arrested last night (January 31) following reports of suspicious activities near Uriarra.
About 8.30pm police responded to a report that two men had parked a white Ford Focus near a shed on a Paddy’s River Road property and were acting suspiciously.
Shortly afterwards, further reports were received that the same vehicle was doing burnouts in Uriarra village.
Police found the vehicle about 8.55pm in the Cotter Bend campground. It will be alleged one of the men drove at police to escape.
A short time later, a white Nissan Patrol was reported stolen from a Cotter Road residence.
About 9.45 pm police located the Nissan near the Cotter Road, where it had been involved in a collision, possibly with the Ford.
The two men were found nearby, and taken to hospital for examination.

A 29-year-old Queanbeyan man is also facing court on charges including driving motor vehicles without consent, driving while disqualified, resisting arrest, damaging property and breach of good behaviour obligations.
