Saanich Police looking for young suspect in multiple liquor store robberies


Saanich Police have released surveillance photos of a young woman responsible for multiple thefts from a liquor store in late June.

Police believe the pictured suspect is part of a group that stole from a liquor store in the 3200-block of Shelbourne Street on four separate occasions.

The suspect was caught on CCTV stealing bottles of liquor on more than one occasion and is a suspect in two other instances of theft from the same liquor store. 

In one of the thefts, staff tried to stop the theft and the employee that intervened was assaulted and on another occasion, bear spray was used unsuccessfully on the liquor store’s staff.

In total, 11 bottles of liquor have been stolen by the group that she is thought to be a part of.

Saanich Police are hopeful  that by identifying this suspect, they might identify the rest of her co-conspirators.  

Anyone with information on these thefts or that can identify the suspect pictured below is asked to call Saanich Police at (250) 475-4321. You can also report what you know anonymously through the Greater Victoria Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
