An 18-year-old Langford teen was arrested Tuesday following a crime spree that started at Colwood City Hall two weeks ago.

On Saturday, April 17th, at 1:36 a.m., West Shore RCMP responded to a multiple hit alarm at Colwood City Hall, located at 3300 Wishart Road.

When officers arrived, they noticed the lights on inside the building and as they approached, a City of Colwood truck fled the parking lot at a high rate of speed.

The truck was located a few blocks away after crashed through the fence of a nearby home — the vehicle was unoccupied.

On April 27th, the West Shore RCMP Crime Reduction unit arrested an 18-year-old Langford resident.

“The man was released by the RCMP on an Undertaking for break and enter to a business and theft of the city truck,” West Shore RCMP said in a media release.

This investigation is still ongoing.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to contact the West Shore RCMP at (250) 474-2264. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact our local Crime Stoppers at (250) 475-4260.
