Offenders who allegedly ram-raided a BWS liquor in Charnwood with a stolen car in the early hours of Wednesday morning failed to enter the store.
At about 1.22am, police responded after an alarm sounded at the store.
CCTV images show a black Holden Colorado ute, that has been reported to police as stolen, reversing into the front of the store.
The offenders caused a large amount of damage but failed to gain entry.
They then abandoned the car and ran away.
ACT Policing say the attack was an attempted aggravated burglary with property damage.
Police are urging any witnesses to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via act.crimestoppers.com.au.
