Alleged car thief nabbed in downtown Victoria
A 32-year-old man was arrested Saturday night for allegedly driving a stolen Dodge Charger and carrying concealed weapons.
When a Victoria police cruiser pulled over the vehicle in the 900-block of North Park Street, a man attempted to flee on foot but was soon apprehended, said Const. Mike Russell.
"He had a stun gun on him, not a police issue weapon, but more like one of those pokers, and also a collapsible baton," Russell said, adding the suspect is well known to police.
The vehicle, along with other personal property, had been reported stolen to Langford RCMP on Thursday.
