A suspect was caught in the act this week breaking into a storage locker at Elements Casino in View Royal.

West Shore RCMP were notified of the break-in by a remote security surveillance company on February 7 at 4:40 p.m.

The company told police that several individuals were breaking into a storage locker on the property and provided RCMP with detailed descriptions.

Officers responded and located two male suspects. An investigation found that only one of them was alleged to have broken into the storage locker.

He was arrested for break and enter while the other suspect was released.

The arrested suspect had numerous outstanding charges from unrelated investigations in Saanich and Victoria, including break and enter, breach of conditions, theft and possession of a controlled substance.

He was held in custody for a court appearance on Friday.
