32-year-old man arrested for mail theft while breaking into Saanich business


Saanich Police have arrested a 32-year-old man who was caught red-handed breaking into a local business.

At around 4:30 a.m. on June 28, Saanich Police were alerted to an alarm going off at a business in the 700-block of Tolmie Ave.

Once officers arrived at the business, they found signs of someone having entered the premises, and then saw the suspect inside the property.

Police say they then spoke to the man before arresting him and charging him with break and enter and theft of mail.

“The mail he was in possession of belonged to the business he was inside of,” said Cst. Markus Anastasiades in a statement.

“He was also in possession of some electronics that investigators are trying to determine the ownership of.”

The 32-year-old man, a resident of the Greater Victoria area, was later released with a court date set in August.
