POLICE BRIEFS: Thefts, motor vehicle incidents and impaired drivers

Police news from the Central Saanich Police Service

• Central Saanich police remind residents to lock their vehicles and remove valuables after more thefts from vehicles have been occurring in the Tanner Ridge area.

• On Nov. 5 just before 10 p.m. police were alerted by a citizen to a possible impaired driver on the Pat Bay Highway. An officer responded and caught up with the vehicle around the Tanner Road exit. The officer found the driver to be visibly impaired and asked for a breath sample. The driver failed two roadside screening tests  and the 38-year-old Saanich man was issued a 90 day suspension and a 30-day impound.

• On Nov. 4 police responded to an incident near the intersection of Benvento and Wallace drives around 9:15 a.m. A van on Wallace Drive had been trying to pass a group of cyclists on the side of the road when he lost control of the vehicle and began to slide into the oncoming lane. The driver sideswiped a vehicle traveling northbound and caused around $4,500 in damage.

No injuries to the drivers or the cyclists were reported and the 55-year-old Saanich man was charged with speed relative to conditions.
