Boat damage traced to hit and run in Brentwood Bay

Police are still investigating a hit and run that took place on the water after the July 18 fireworks at Butchart Gardens.

This vessel was moored to a buoy outside the Angler’s Anchorage Marina in Brentwood Bay when it was struck.

CENTRAL SAANICH — Police are still investigating a hit and run that took place on the water after the July 18 fireworks at Butchart Gardens.

A boat is believed to have struck the side of the 30 foot aluminum vessel, causing $7,000 worth of damage.

There was one witness who heard the crash and came forward to the police the day after the incident, but the Central Saanich Police Service report that the person didn’t see anything at the time it happened, which was around midnight on the 18th.

Police are looking for a boat sitting approximately two feet above the water line, with a bow mount and that may have fresh damage and yellow paint on the bow — as traces of yellow and a large dent were left on the damaged boat.

Witnesses are asked to contact Sgt. Andre Rosset of Central Saanich Police at 250 652 4441 or Crime Stoppers at 1 800 222 TIPS (8477).
