They were arrested just before 2 a.m. on Thursday after an officer on general patrol observed the two men riding bicycles on Oxley Drive with no lights.
After searching a backpack belonging to one of the accused men, police said they found night vision binoculars, balaclava, various tools, gloves and a syringe containing methamphetamine.

The 36-year-old man was taken into custody pending a bail hearing.
