Two men recently released from jail are facing charges that include break and enter after allegedly trying to steal propane bottles from holiday trailers in Olds on Wednesday.

Olds RCMP received a complaint around 12:15 a.m. on Wednesday of two suspicious men on 61st Avenue in the town.

Police followed the footprints in the snow to a hole cut in a chainlink fence of a local business’s compound.

The accused were found walking around the compound and arrested without incident.

Both were recently released from a provincial correctional facility.

One man, of no fixed address, is charged with three counts of break and enter, one count of theft under $5,000, one count of mischief to property and one count of breach of probation order. He was released from a correctional facility less than 36 hours prior to the incident.

The second man, of no fixed address, is charged with three counts of break and enter, one count of theft under $5,000, mischief to property and two counts of breach of probation order.

The two men will be in Didsbury court on Monday.
