• On Thursday June 6, police received a call at 12:40 a.m. regarding a break and enter at the 17 Mile liquor store, and were on the scene within 13 minutes. The bottle return lock-up had been broken into. Video surveillance shows a dark or black car with a make similar to a Chevrolet Cavalier leaving the lot, heading towards Sooke.

• On the morning of June 7, police were notified of another break and enter that occurred on the 6200 block of Sooke Road. The call was made at 9:45 a.m. Access was gained through the back door of a business, which was kicked in. A generator was stolen.

• On June 7 at 7:45 p.m. a collision occurred between a motorcycle, west-bound on Otter Point Rd, and a Toyota Yarris, east-bound on Otter Point and turning left onto Butler. The driver of the vehicle said they did not see the oncoming motorcycle, and glare from the sun might have been a contributing factor. Both vehicles were damaged, and the motorcycle rider sustained non-life threatening head and cheek injuries.
