Saanich couple foils theft attempt
Jun 08 2012
A quick-thinking Saanich couple tried to box in a man they caught burgling their home Thursday morning.
The couple saw someone inside their house when they arrived home to the 4500 block of Blenkinsop Road around 9: 30 a.m., said Saanich police Sgt. Scott Treble.
One of the homeowners tried to block the man's car in the driveway with his truck, but the man fled on foot.
Const. Jon Zielinski and police dog Zeke found the man hiding nearby, Treble said.
A 37-year-old View Royal man is facing a charge of break and enter and two counts of possessing stolen property related to a stolen vehicle and property found inside of it.
