In the Feb. 6 edition of the Sooke News Mirror, we reported a rash of vehicle thefts happening in the Broomhill and Sunriver areas.

On Thursday Feb. 21, the Regional Crime Unit arrested 46-year-old Darin Leslie Hagel of Esquimalt and charged him with 23 counts of theft, possession of stolen property, and mischief. Further charges are anticipated.

Hagel has been linked to 21 separate thefts including 11 in Saanich and the remainder in Sooke.

Officers subsequently obtained a search warrant for Hagel and recovered approximately 100 items of suspected stolen property, including a large number of iPods, cell phones, digital cameras and GPS devices.

 

The accident on the 5900 block of West Coast Road that stopped traffic on the morning of Feb. 27 is still under investigation.
