CLIFTON, N.J. -- Clifton police converged on a construction site and nabbed two men who they said were stealing copper piping.

The property at 85 Ackerman Avenue was burglarized sometime overnight Monday into Tuesday, Lt. Robert Bracken said.

Around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Officer Bryan Baurys was patrolling the area and spotted both men inside the site, he said.

Officers established a perimeter, searched the property and arrested Christopher Janas, 57, of Passaic and Neil Lori, 50, of Nutley, Bracken said.

Both were charged with burglary -- although additional charges were possible, the lieutenant said.

Janas, who also was wanted on a warrant out of Bergen County, and Lori were being held pending a hearing Wednesday, Bracken said.

Meanwhile, an investigation continues.
