(VicPD)

Those are some expensive donuts.

VicPD’s traffic unit impounded a vehicle and consequently served the driver with almost $800 in violation tickets on Wednesday afternoon, after receiving reports of the Chevrolet Camaro doing donuts on the grass in Irving Park.

Just after 1 p.m. yesterday, VicPD were called to the park in the 200-block of Menzies Street in James Bay, where they located the vehicle and driver of the Camaro, parked next to circular marks on the grass.

After continuing their investigation, police learned that not only was the vehicle unregistered, it was also uninsured – and the driver had driven from Alberta to Victoria with the intent of camping in a park.

At the time of the incident, the vehicle was around 30 metres from a playground occupied with children.

VicPD impounded the vehicle for seven days for ‘stunting’, and also served the driver with $794 in violation tickets for no insurance, and driving without consideration.

If anyone has information about this incident, they’re asked to call the VicPD Report Desk at (250) 995-7654.
