Two London men are facing charges after police say an under-construction apartment building in west London was broken into and damaged early Wednesday morning.
In a statement Thursday, police said they responded to the scene along Sugarcreek Trail, northwest of Riverside Drive and Beaverbrook Avenue, around 3 a.m. for a reported break-in at a construction site at the address.
The caller told police they observed two men enter the unfinished apartment building on surveillance camera, police said.
