Police Beat- May 29

Vehicle break-ins continue to plague the Sooke RCMP

  • May. 29, 2013 5:00 p.m.

On May 17, on the 7000 block of Maple Park Terrace, Sooke RCMP supported by the Island District Emergency Response Team executed a search warrant.

The search warrant was for a weapons offense contrary to an existing order. The police found a variety of drugs, including crystal meth, marijuana and some other items, and about $2,500 cash on hand. The services of the Emergency Response Team was not required.

Charges were laid against 33-year-old Brent Barry Bruce Brown. A second person from the same residence was also arrested, and charges are pending. Brown was held in custody and later released.

• On Thursday night, May 23, 15 cars were broken into in the Sunriver area, and these were reported to the police on May 24 and 25.

Someone was arrested in another jurisdiction, and items stolen from the vehicles in Sooke were found on that person.

Found among the stolen items was a set of car keys, presumably left in the vehicle. This is a reminder to car owners not to leave valuables in the car. Keys are considered valuables.

• With EMCS grad night upcoming, Staff Sergeant Stephen Wright alerts parents to the dangers of hosting under-age after-grad parties where alcohol is served. Parent can be charged under the Liquor Act, and this charge includes a mandatory court appearance. He encourages parents to support dry grad parties. Other words of advise are to know where your kids are, ensure they have a phone with them so they can call for help or for a ride, and to be without judgement in the moment. Reserve any words of wisdom for the following day, when cooler heads prevail.
