On October 15, 2020, police officers with the North Cowichan Duncan RCMP Street Crimes Unit and front-line officers interrupted an alleged break and enter in progress at Island GM in Duncan, BC, and arrested a 37-year-old Parksville man.

At around 9:20 pm, police received the call about a suspected break and enter in progress at Island GM on Island Highway, Duncan, BC. Officers with the Street Crimes Unit were already in the area doing proactive patrols and were able to attend immediately. Upon arrival, they found a hole cut in a fence, then located and arrested a 37-year-old male near a storage container inside the yard. The man was allegedly in the process of removing items from the storage container and loading them into a nearby vehicle.

Over the course of the investigation, police executed a search warrant on the suspect’s vehicle. In the search, they located bolt cutters and other break and enter tools inside the vehicle. Police also worked with staff and security at Island GM to review surveillance footage, providing further evidence to support the charges against the suspect.

For privacy reasons, police cannot release the suspect’s name at this time. He is facing several charges including break and enter and possession of break and enter tools, and is scheduled to appear in court on December 15, 2020, in Duncan, BC.
