A concerned citizen is being lauded by police for his efforts in helping Sooke RCMP apprehended a man who was driving towards Sooke from Langford last Wednesday.

The vehicle, a black Acura sedan, was reportedly swerving all over the roadway and into the oncoming lanes on Sooke Road.

While Sooke  were en route, the witness reported the vehicle had parked on Woodlands Road and the suspect driver had exited the vehicle. The witness continued to monitor the suspect from afar until police officers arrived and arrested the male.

A search incidental to the arrest revealed the suspect was in possession of a small quantity of ecstasy.

Angus Matthew Milne, of Nanaimo, is charged with dangerous driving, breach of recognizance, and possession of a controlled substance.
