A 40-year-old Victoria man has been arrested following a stolen car attempt in central Sooke, RCMP say.

Officers were called to Village Foods parking lot on Feb. 25 after reports of a person breaking into the vehicle and driving off.

Police say they located the vehicle parked outside a condominium unit at 1987 Kaltasin Rd. A suspect was later arrested.

The suspect is facing five charges including breach of probation, breach of conditional sentence, possession of cocaine, theft and possession of stolen property. No name was released.

Sooke RCMP are reminding residents to lock their vehicles and not leave valuables inside.

“Anything valuable on your property should be secured and out of sight if possible. This is the best way to protect yourself from being victimized by thieves,” said Sooke RCMP Staff Sgt. Jeff McArthur.
