• Local RCMP issued four excessive speed vehicle impound orders on the Pat Bay Highway over the Aug. 8 and 9 weekend. These motorists were all travelling more than 50 km/hr over the posted speed limit.

 

• On Aug. 6 officers responded to a break, enter and theft at a residence on Basswood Road in North Saanich. The suspect(s) smashed a window to gain entry and took jewellery. Please ensure you secure your valuables and keep watch of your neighbours.  If any suspicious persons are seen in your neighbourhoods please call police.

 

• On Aug. 6, RCMP responded to another break and enter. This one occurred on Mainwaring Road and was an attempted break in by smashing a window. The suspect(s) were not successful.

 

• On Aug. 7 at 2 p.m. police attended the bus stop on Beacon Ave. at Fifth Street after reports a distressed man was throwing liquids at people.

The man was found asleep under the bumper of a parked vehicle. He was arrested for being drunk in a public place and became very irate and violent with police. The man attempted kicking out the police car windows and spat continuously at police. The man was ultimately taken to hospital for assessment, as it was believed he had consumed an undetermined amount of illicit drugs.
