Nov 17 2011
A Saanich police dog helped catch two youths suspected of breaking into two liquor stores early Monday.
An alarm sounded around 1:15 a.m. when a glass window was broken at the B.C. Liquor store on McKenzie Avenue at Borden Street, Saanich police spokesman Sgt. Dean Jantzen said.
Police arrived and detained the male teens spotted nearby. Police dog Zeke tracked the scent from the liquor store directly to them.
Officers also discovered the liquor store at Saanich Centre at Quadra Street and McKenzie had been broken into, Jantzen said.
Video surveillance from both stores pointed to the two teens believed responsible.
A 15-year-old from Victoria and a 16-year-old from Langford have been charged with break and enter. Both were released until future court dates.
