VicPD Cruiser Downtown

VicPD are looking for witnesses and anyone who might have surveillance footage of a suspected prowler spotted in Esquimalt on Wednesday.

Officers were called to the 1200-block of Colville Road just after 1 a.m. on January 20 for a report of a prowler.

A resident told police that they had noticed an air conditioner had been moved out of their window. As they walked into the room, a flashlight was shone into it from the outside.

The suspect fled the scene and officers flooded the area.

VicPD K9 responded and police tracked a potential suspect through the neighbourhood in the direction of Lockley Street.

During the course of the search officers noted that numerous sheds and backyards in the area had been accessed. The suspect was not located.

VicPD are asking that anyone who might have home surveillance video or who witnessed the incident contact them at (250) 995-7654 ext. 1.
