A suspect sought for vandalizing a building in downtown Victoria earlier last month has turned himself in according to VicPD.

On December 12th, the vandalism suspect was caught on surveillance video vandalizing multiple store fronts at 845 and 848 Yates Street in the early morning hours.

The footage shows the suspect approach the buildings on Yates Street at approximately 3:30 a.m., and spray paint in two different locations.

The suspect was accompanied by at least one other individual who watches him commit the mischief. They both then entered one of the buildings alongside another group of people.

VicPD released the video to the media on December 30th with hopes the public could help identify him or the individuals he was with.

Not long after that, several people recognized the suspect from the video and contacted police. The suspect’s counsel then contacted investigators to arrange his surrender to officers.

He was arrested and released pending a future court date and faces recommended charges for mischief below $5,000.
