Man shot dead in Beiseker
(West Shore RCMP)

West Shore RCMP have arrested a 33-year-old man after he allegedly broke into a construction site in Colwood.

On Sunday, August 9 at around 11:25 p.m., police received a report of a break-and-enter at a construction site located at 1913 Sooke Rd.

A security company told police that a male suspect with a backpack was observed entering the south side of the building.

When officers, arrived, they spotted the suspect, later identified as 33-year-old Adrian Graham, and informed him that he was under arrest.

At that point, police say he tried to run away but was caught a few minutes later.

Once he was arrested, a search of his backpack yielded multiple tools, torches, narcotics, a collapsible baton and brass knuckles.

It was later determined that Graham was under court-ordered conditions to not own any weapons, and he was therefore also arrested for breaching conditions and possessing a prohibited weapon.

Graham is currently in custody awaiting court, and has been charged with break and enter, possession of a weapon dangerous to the public, breach of probation order and possession of a controlled substance.
